Cold Morning Kickstart!

-30c was the reading first thing on the outside thermometer. With the dogwalk at 7:30 the needle hadn’t budged! Fame toughed it for about 20 minutes. My carrying her for 15 metres was a little much for her though. She bolted ahead the rest of the way.

Next was feed Fame, my breakfast and shower, then the car. Would it need a “kickstart”? (Rather happy that I had opted not to ride this morning.)* The temperature had warmed to -26c!

It started! It complained, but it started!

All that to say that I am here now and I am having my own “Kickstart!”

  • 3 shots of espresso
  • 1/2 ounce of Baker’s chocolate (melted into the espresso)
  • Steamed organic milk, 3.8% mf (calories for the cold!)
  • Sweetened to taste – if necessary!

Notice the little bits of chocolate!
Stir well!

*Riding in this weather is not impossible or even “crazy”. It is important to be properly dressed for it. My excuse – I am not there yet!
