Dinner of champions, I say.
Somehow, this seems an appropriate meal when one is contemplating life and the sunset in Southwest Florida. It was a gorgeous day here, when for the past week, folks actually feared they'd see a snowflake or two. People actually stared at my feet in bug-eyed disbelief as I sported flip-flops instead of closed-in shoes to beat the frigid 50ish temps. I'm on vacation, darn it, and my toes are ready to be set free from the boots I was wearing in NJ on a regular basis. I don't care how chilly it is.
But, the Marco Island sun gods smiled down upon us today and gave us a day to toss those jackets and gloves aside while jockeying for a position by the pool where we could soak in those rays. Mid-to upper 60's felt glorious.
Life is good.
But, back to dinner. Alright, truth be told, I did prepare a spinach salad with sliced avocado, cranberries, nuts, grape tomatoes, and crumbled blue cheese; all drizzled with olive oil and raspberry balsamic vinegar. The Sunsweet Chocolate Covered Plum Sweets were dessert. Along with another glass of Pinot Grigio.
