What a heck of day here in North Texas! Pick up the teens early due to tornadic weather reports. Glad I got them home before the schools went on lock down. My daughter’s school thought it would be a bright idea to just leave the kids in the classroom cause their is glass in some of the hallways. Though I agree, I don’t think the classroom is a good place either. Why not the gym? Not to mention it took them over 30 minutes after the sirens went off (and were still going off) to decide to move the kids. The sirens went off after I decided to go get my boys (as I was walking to the car) and I went to their school first, which had them in the hallway, and then headed to my daughter’s school; in which I encounter chaos and mayhem. The secretary had the nerve to tell us that we had to wait while they handled the kids. My first thought, you should have handled the kids thirty minutes ago and there would be no chaos. Wow!
After that we headed home and watched the show outside unfold and the reports on the TV of over 12 tornadoes that touch down around our area. The closest two were Grapevine and Coppell. Both are less then 15 minutes from me. I am glad there is no reports of badly injured people. I feel horrible for those without power. I did manage to take a few shots as the storm died off, in which, they will be on the blog tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday.
This a simple red grapefruit parmesan salad I make when the power goes out or just for a easy, quick lunch at home. I used a bottled vinaigrette salad dressing but I hope soon to have a homemade version up on the site!
- 1 handful green leaf lettuce (our your choice of lettuce)
- 2 rounds of red onion; sliced
- 3 grapefruit slices; peel grapefruit and slice in rounds
- Grated Parmesan cheese per taste
- French Vinaigrette salad dressing
- On a plate, add lettuce and top with grapefruit slices and red onion rounds. Grate Parmesan cheese over the top and drizzle with French Vinaigrette dressing.
