As the heatwave continues, I find it’s a good idea to treat myself on the way home every now and then. Keeps morale up.
My usual indulgence is a stop at the grocery store for a cold six-pack or a pint of Ben & Jerry’s (Americone Dream!), but recently I kicked it up a notch. Mr. Dottie and I met at a French bistro for dinner on our way home from work in the middle of the week. Dripping with sweat and hauling our panniers and helmets, we were too excited about the delicious aromas to care whether we fit in with the other patrons.
Here was my reward for biking through a heat wave. Bread, butter and a lillet blonde – parfait! :)
Additional rewards: mussels in white wine, coq au vin, creme brulee. Hells yeah. That certainly gave me the motivation to make it through another sweaty bike commute.
I hope you’re treating yourself! And don’t forget to drink lots of
beer water to stay hydrated! ;)
