Iced Coffee: Summer Afternoon Pick-me-up

My mom introduced me to this "Summer Afternoon Pick-me-up" and I need one today!

All that is needed:
Leftover Coffee from the AM
Cream and Sugar (I don't usually add sugar to my coffee but this is a pick-me-up!)
Coffee ice cubes

First, add sugar to lukewarm coffee so it dissolves! Then add the amount of cream you like and top with your coffee ice cubes.

At night, hubby and I will often make a pot of decaf after dinner. If there is any leftover I pour into ice cube trays. Then when I want an iced coffee, I can add it to my coffee that watered down taste. The sugar and coffee add the pick-me-up but with decaf ice cubes I know I'm not getting too much caffeine.

Serve with a Trader Joe's Chocolate Canneles de Bordeaux warmed for 20 secs in the microwave and you'll be ready to face the rest of the day and maybe even be delighted when your little ones wake from their naps!

This is exactly what I do! I have an ounce of dark chocolate with mine, and spend 30 minutes on the couch with a book. And then I'm MUCH happier when my kids wake up. :)
