Welcome to Honey Night

What would a room full of Beekeepers do for fun... have a Honey Tasting Party of course! Papa Smurf and company, the Winwards and the Harker's joined us for an evening of Bee-utiful food and some really sweet company. We started the evening with a honey tasting... including honey from all parts of the world. As the votes were tallied we learned that Paris has terrible honey and Steve the Queen's honey was the favorite. A special thank you to Leisa for helping with the picture taking

The bowls are all lined up for the tasting.

We used homemade rolls, Dave's wheat bread, and breadsticks to do the tasting.

This was serious business.

Camber and Riley were good sports... both were probably wondering when they were going to get real food to eat for dinner.

Bob looks like he's refereeing a shouting match here. Relax guys... it's just a friendly neighborhood honey tasting party.

After the tasting we dined on Honey and Lime Glazed Salmon on a bed of sauteed corn, black bean, and Spinach. Dave grilled up a batch of his famous smoked ribs with honey. We also enjoyed a harvest green salad with Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette, and don't forget the homemade Honey Rolls...are you noticing a trend yet?

Dave's famous ribs otherwise known as meat candy!

I look like I'm whispering in Dean's ear at this point...

And if we weren't already completely stuffed, for desert we enjoyed warm Apple Pie with Honey Ice Cream. Do you realize how many bees it took to prepare this meal? Thank you to our little bee friends in the backyard. The bees are all tucked in for winter...see you next year girls, and thanks for a great dinner!


  1. That looked like the most delish night EVER. Jealous!

  2. Looks like so much fun! What a great idea to have a theme dinner around honey!

  3. It was a honey of a night! Still can't get over how different it all tasted. The food & movie were the BEST!
