I did my last batch of biscuit mix differently; I left out the fat. it used to be a kilo of flour, 1tbsp. baking soda, and 1/2tbsp. salt, with anywhere from 1/2 to 1 cup lard or other cooking oil. without the lard it's a lot simpler and cleaner to make and keep. plus it works for recipes without fat, such as frybread.

made my first good frybread tonight, two donut-shaped pieces of my biscuit mix with water added and kneaded to an elastic dough. formed into 2 balls, flattened, poked a hole in each and fried about 30 seconds to a side. came out great, nice crust on the outside and chewy inside. would have been tastier with a little sugar or something... maybe cinnamon? but just fine without.

making another meat stew with one package each of very meaty beef and pork bones, total only 29 pesos. will maybe add veggies tomorrow, but for tonight, just meat and maybe some more frybread, dumplings, or other bread.
