I should just have left things the way they were.
I was (moments ago) doing little maintenance things around the website, typing up another printable recipe (for the Short Dough used here and, last year, here. And in my travels, I discovered that I had posted this year's Short Dough post twice. (I think I did that this morning trying to get this month's banner to HURRY UP AND SHOW UP!!!! MAYBE IF I JUST PUBLISH SOMETHING RANDOMLY, IT'LL SHOW UP! THAT'S WHAT I'LL DO!) (Impatience is not always a good thing.)
Anyway, I saw that there were two posts of the same name, and so, before anyone could notice and point and laugh about it, I deleted the most recently published one.
A bit later, I was checking my email, and discovered that Lynne had left me a comment about the new banner:
"This month's header bar piccy is nice and easy.. but I still can't find last month's chocolate.
So you had better spill the beans now."
!!! She was right! I still hadn't posted that recipe yet!! Immediately, I clicked on the link (in my email) to the post she'd made this comment in (bad grammer, sorry) – it was the recent Short Dough – Big Snowflakes etc. post. But when I clicked on it, I got a "sorry, the page you want no longer exists" message.
Oops. Sorry, Lynne!!
But, to answer your extremely valid question, the chocolate from last month's banner – here it is, in case you don't remember it or haven't seen it – was from the making of my sister's birthday cake.
Her birthday? Halloween. Yeah, I know. It needs to be posted. Yesterday. Or, rather, yesterday last month.
By the way, it's not just chocolate. It's chocolate drizzled into cheesecake batter.
I know. Yesterday last month.
