Landi Simone the ‘Bee Lady’ of Gooserock Farm in Montville, New Jersey goes all out every year to help raise awareness about honey bees and their importance to our agriculture and eco-systems.
Landi, pictured here in her ‘bee bikini’, got together with fellow, bee buddy, Joe Treimel to show off their live bee apparel and accessories. Joe sported a bee beard. This all took place last weekend at the Essex County Environmental Center.
Read more about Landi and what is happening to honey bees in one of my earlier posts. Here’s a crazy story I saw yesterday morning on CNN.com about 12 MILLION honey bees that swarmed a Canadian highway after a truck carrying them flipped over!
My favorite honey & herb sauce . . .
We usually put this on grilled tuna, but it could go on a variety of things, including grilled tofu. It is a wonderful sauce that I can never make enough of! It is great this time of year because I have most of the ingredients in my garden, and of course I get the best honey from my local bee lady . . .
1 c. parsley
1/4 c. dill
1/4 c. olive oil (I usually mix 1/2 flax seed oil)
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
3 T. honey
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. ground blacks pepper
your favorite capers
Wash and pat dry the herbs and throw everything but the capers in a blender or food processor. Voila! Spoon it onto your favorite fish or veggie protein and add capers.
NOTE: you can adjust any of the seasonings AND the oil and vinegar to your own taste. I’ve actually done this with cilantro, parsley and used lime juice.
