Our stay at Rhythmic Medicine was a relaxing and healing one. The opportunity to not only learn but to also experience how music is a truly healing force was absolutely amazing. Our host, Janalea, guided us on a journey through her practice of musical therapy which encompasses a wide variety of musical-based therapy practices involving multiple senses.

Visiting Rhythmic Medicine

The studio highlights the Native American Flute and offers lessons with this unique and beautiful instrument. No prior musical knowledge is needed to jump right in with Janalea's lesson and quickly be able to enjoy this instrument. There are also flutes available to purchase in a wide variety of price ranges and constructed of a variety of beautiful woods, each as unique as the person who wishes to play it.

Rhythmic Medicine also offers other relaxing therapy options all designed to lower your heart rate, reduce your blood pressure, and improve your overall well-being. You are able to enjoy a session on the infrared biomats embedded with heated natural amethyst crystals, as well as the musical biomats that play soothing music and allow your body to absorb the rhythms of the music. Also, be sure to take some time while you are there to play the cathedral drums and enjoy the art of hand-painted drums that adorn the walls. No doubt you will rest well and feel rejuvenated at this quiet, unique, and peaceful Harvest Hosts location nestled on the outskirts of Overland Park, Kansas.

Montana Max's Recipes From The Road:

Indian Fry Bread

(serves 6)

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups water (approx)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • high heat oil for frying (vegetable, avocado, or peanut oils all work great)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
  2. Gradually stir in the water and milk to form a dough consistency. (If it gets too sticky you can add in small amounts of flour until it's just right, not overly sticky & not overly dry)
  3. Knead the dough several times.
  4. Let dough rest for approx 30 minutes (this will help it puff more)
  5. Roll out into 5-inch circles (or sized to your preference)
  6. Make a small hole in the center with your fingers or a small knife. This helps prevent the dough from puffing up too much in the center and becoming a ball. (Natives may tell you the hole is to release the spirits from the dough before it gets cooked!)
  7. In a deep skillet or large pot, fry the dough in small batches in several inches of hot oil at 375°. (Always temp oil prior to frying and re-check temp in between batches)
  8. The dough will puff and bubble.
  9. Use tongs to flip fry bread when golden brown. Watch closely so it doesn't burn!
  10. Drain the Indian fry bread on paper towels and serve hot! Add traditional taco toppings for a meal OR serve as a sweet treat drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon or dusted with powdered sugar. Yuuuummy either way!

Fun & Simple Recipe Camping Tips!

  • When having a campfire, make strips of the Indian fry bread dough (instead of circles) and wrap dough strips on the end of a cleaned stick or hotdog skewer and cook it over the fire, rotating to get even cooking. Sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar or butter & salt for a savory twist on it. Fun for both kids and adults!
  • To speed up the recipe you can use self-rising flour and milk (then you can eliminate the baking powder & salt)
  • An even easier option is to buy a bag of frozen bread dough. Thaw the dough and roll out/flatten into circles for each serving. Follow the recipe above for frying these and you will have made a simple Indian Fry Bread in no time.
