Let's see- a pound of honey should have 7 points total in 5 gallons, and DME should have 9 points for a pound in 5 gallons.
So, if you add a pound of DME now, you'd be right about 1.040 for preboil. The honey will give you about 1.047 at the end.
If my math is correct (iffy), I'd add a pound of DME right now to the kettle with the wort.
