Storm footage taken in Topeka, KS on May 21, 2011. This tornado outbreak started on May 21st, lasted until May 26th, and covered many states. There were 133 confirmed tornadoes and 156 deaths.

In this video you can see cloud rotation and several tornadoes attempting to form. It is unclear if any reached the ground, but a tornado was spotted on the ground in Topeka around the time this footage was taken.

Kansas Countryside #2

Kansas Countryside #2

This is one of my favorite photos taken while on vacation. In a state of vast plains and open fields, it’s easy to overlook the simple, quiet beauty Kansas can possess. Various colors of green under a variegated blue sky, a still pond with cows in the background, and a dead tree surrounded by life make for a picture full of undertones.

2-3 T. chili powder avocado (optional)
lime or lime juice Monterey Jack cheese, grated
tortilla chips

  2. With broth in pot, add tomatoes, corn and chili powder to taste; let simmer. Add chicken.

To serve: In individual bowls, place a couple of pieces of avocado with lime juice, add broken tortilla chips, and grated Monterey Jack cheese. Pour soup over and top with cheese and chips.

This recipe was originally three different recipes that I spliced together. Two were from the Betty Crocker website. Don’t remember where the third was from.

This is a fairly sweet dessert and pretty easy to make. I don’t know that I’d make it to take somewhere it would be sitting out for a long time with all the milk it has in it though.
