Well. Here I am - the delinquent. This year's cookie swap (that I
pestered inspired everyone into doing, but forgot to register us, so we ended up doing it on our own) is done. The swapped cookies from Yasmeen, Sherilyn, and Steph are all happily devoured, and my shortbreads were the last to be swapped, with (according to Steph) only 20% breakage.

This is how bad she wants Santa to come ... she'll hold a plateful of cookies while Mummy takes a photo or three ...

Well, if you haven't ... today's your day! Kickstarter is an *awesome* idea, about awesome ideas.
People with innovative new business plans post them on the site, and all of us out there in the world can become 'backers' - giving anywhere between a few $$ and mega-$$, depending on our interest and what we want in return. Typically you get the product itself, plus any number of added extras.
I love this site - because it's full of energy and novelty and incredible gift ideas.

I originally wrote this recipe using beet juice. Recently though, I haven't been juicing so much ... I think it's the mortal fear of having to wash the various implements involved. But I do love the idea of integrating more beetroot (aka beet, for you North Americans) into my diet and my family's.
Which is a challenge, because Robbie detests it. Almost as much as blue cheese.
But beetroot has this amazing synergy when it's mixed with chocolate, or cocoa powder ... making something utterly, indescribably good. Hence, this smoothie was born.
This is the new, revised, juicing-free version.
