Beet and Yoghurt Dip



Well the summer soccer season is now officially over – which reduces our soccer commitment to only 4 days per week! Yay.

Summer soccer didn’t end quite as well as the boys had hoped, with a disappointing loss in the grand final. So our beautiful boys, competitive spirits dashed, fought tears through the medal ceremony.

Thankfully we had a party planned for them afterwards. True to form, the boys had their runners-up medals safely stashed (not so disappointed they would risk losing them!), and were in the backyard knocking around a soccer ball within moments of arriving.

Spirits revived!

My contribution to the event was dips and nibblies, and I couldn’t resist making something pink. This dip is actually from my sister Salsa, and is truly delicious as well as healthy. I often make it to use in salad sandwiches for work/school day lunches.
