Stopping by on a bee-supply run

Lucky for us, Natalie from http://knatolee.blogspot.ca/and Gordon shop at a bee-supply shop only minutes from our home.
So...they stopped in and we headed out for lunch.
Since we had recently had a good lunch at the Waterfront Gastro Pub it was easy to choose the restaurant. It sits along the Mississippi River.

The retired-guy took a pic of Nat and I and then we realized we needed a cat in the photo so Audrey joined us , whether she liked it or not.  

Cutest couple ever.

It is always so great to see Natalie and Gordon and once again she came with her arms loaded with fresh chicken and duck eggs, the best honey ever and her amazing soap. Duck eggs..this will be a first.
Is there anything this girl doesn't turn her hand to?



Thanks again, Natalie & Gord for another fun visit.
It was great to see you and Audrey thinks you're kinda cool.

hugs, Deb

  1. What great friends! Please tell us about the duck eggs: how did you use them? how do they compare to chicken eggs? and did Audrey break any of them,hehe~

    1. Robin, duck eggs are larger, the yolk is a little denser, and there is a greater yolk-to-white ratio in duck eggs. Some people say duck eggs are a little richer. I love baking with them, because I swear things rise higher!! My neighbour says duck eggs make baked goods stay fresh longer but I'm not sure about that one! :)

  2. Natalie's blog is listed on my blog list right under yours - I look forward to both of your blogs everyday. What fun when you get together and blog about it! It makes me happy and I laugh!!! Wish I lived closer so I could buy some of that honey and soap.

    1. Robin, I will have to do a soap giveaway on my blog. When I've made a couple more batches, I'll do that! I wish I could figure out a way to ship honey economically, but it seems to cost more than the honey itself, even within Canada!

  5. I'm kind of jealous that you get to visit with Natalie and I'm kind of jealous that Nat got her picture taken with the famous (infamous?) Audrey! You get honey, eggs and soap, too?

  9. Aw, you are so great! We had such a nice visit with you, and I loved my lunch. I've been out taking off honey supers and making frames all day and just checked this out now.

    We are actually going to call our farm "Amorous Duck Farm" and get a sign made!! :)

    I look hot in the photos! :)

    Thanks for another lovely visit, Deb, and I ADORE my chicken doorstop!!

  10. Awww, I'm sure Audrey just loves the attention.

    Except when she's being awakened out of a restful slumber.
