I am saving mine to make dumplings for Chicken and Dumplings tomorrow.

I get my honey home grown from Kim and Kurt.
Dinner is served.
Greg Benda joined us for dinner tonight. I am trying to make sure he eats while Linda is in Europe. Not only is it nice to enjoy his company but he presented me with a beautiful bouquet this evening.
