On a recent Monday morning at Whole Foods Market in Princeton, New Jersey I attended a blogger event tilted  "Plant Seeds, Protect Pollinators".

The morning was spent with fellow bloggers and "Share the Buzz" promoters
Kitchen Twins
Jersey Family Fun
Jersey Girl Cooks
Rodale Institute
Fruit Wood Farm
Whole Foods Markets team

The food we sampled was courtesy of the honey bee population. The food was very fresh and flavorful. Thanks honey bees.

Blackberry Honeydew Salad
Bee friendly salad

2 cups fresh blackberries
2 cups honeydew melon, cut into pieces the size of the blackberries
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey

put the fruit on a plate or in a serving bowl
whisk lime juice and honey together and drizzle over the fruit

Serves 4

Cheese pairing with honey: Taste the cheese first, then taste the honey. It's amazingly good. Great combinations. The Cherry Hill store offers this class on pairing. Check the store for registration, date, and time.

We did not just eat the whole morning long, we learned a few things too:

Buzz words like green and sustainable are good thoughts but let's think regeneration. As in regenerate our soil.
Don't just sustain agriculture, regenerate it.
Healthy Soil, Healthy crops, Healthy people. 
Rodale Institute has studied "Regenerative Organic Agricultural & Climate Change.

Keep your yard or little piece of the earth free of harmful chemicals in your neck of the woods. Plant plants, giving bees places to do their work. Honey bees travel from plant to plant doing their job pollinating. Use organic, non modified seeds. Don't use harmful pesticides or herbicides on your lawn where bees feed. Visit a local farm that produces all natural honey
Fruitwood Orchards Honey located in Monroeville, New Jersey. You can find their honey at Whole Foods Market in the New Jersey area.

What's in the bag? Bees?
Nope. It's food grown from crops pollinated by honey bees.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o
