Yes. I made some chocolate candy today (Poor Man's Turtles) plus I bought a few bags of Hershey's and Mars chocolates.

That looks good, but I wouldn't have time for pancakes. I'll just eat some quick cereal, then be off to my volunteer work. Hopefully, you can enjoy some maple syrup tomorrow.

I buy packages of frozen pancakes to keep handy. They heat up very quickly in the microwave and there are no dirty dishes from mixing the batter. Maple syrup and honey are my favorite sweeteners.

I've never tried frozen pancakes. Do you use the real maple syrup?

I wish the real stuff wasn't so expensive. We usually just get Log Cabin or Aunt Jemima.

Did you know that honey and maple syrup have no expiration date?

I think I've heard that about honey, but I hadn't heard it about maple syrup, or the other things on that list.

I don't need to bake cookies today, since I brought home some bunny shaped sugar cookies yesterday that another volunteer had made.

Well, at least somebody baked cookies. I find it easier to buy them rather then fire up the oven.
I bought some honey today and noticed 'best by 9/2020' on the lid- I am sure it would last longer but doubt that it will.

I know 2 people who are beekeepers, but they've never offered any honey to me. I assume that they bottle up some of it, but maybe they keep it all to themselves.

I wouldn't mind having an oatmeal muffin or two for breakfast today.

I don't have to look very far to see an evergreen, since I have some in my yard.

I was not fortunate enough to have a chocolate pizza for breakfast today but had some Life Savers handy. I am confident that I can find an evergreen and oatmeal muffin by lunchtime but not so sure about a chocolate pizza, yet.
