Day 9 on Captiva

We debated on going to the Farmer's Market this morning because of the wind and cool weather but finally decided to go after coffee and pastries.  Everyone was bundled up in jackets, parkas, and sweatshirts and the vendors were holding on to their tents to keep them from blowing away.   Parking was limited because the parking lot near the Schoolhouse Theater used by a lot  of the  patrons was mostly flooded and roped off.
We did buy a lot of produce including tomatoes, red peppers, jalapeno peppers, lettuce, fruit, and more,  even some okra. 

  We then went for breakfast at Jerry's Café,  a popular spot with the locals.   Al ordered Cake & Eggs with sausage patties. I had Half Classic Benedict with fruit.

 This was not a good day for the beach even though it was sunny and bright.  Al tried to sit out at the beach but the 40 mile per hour winds prevented that.  I made some fresh salsa with ingredients from the Market and served it with warm chips for our Pre-Super Bowl drinks.  Al made Kim's Berry Delight with Strawberries, Lemonade, and Vodka which were a hit  with our Salsa and Chips.

 For Super Bowl Dinner, Al grilled Rib-eye Steak and Potato Wedges.  I sautéed mushrooms, onions, and red peppers and made arugula salad with my special vinaigrette dressing.  Dinner was delicious!  The grill master done well!!

We watched the Super Bowl 50 between the Broncos and Panthers which resulted in a win for Broncos 24-Panthers 10.
Happy that Peyton Manning won the game!
