Schools will reopen in about two weeks in our district. Needless to say, I’m anxious. It’s true that the number of Covid-19 cases in our county is low compared to the shocking numbers we see in some of the hotbeds around the country. But there are still new cases reported daily. More importantly, the transmission rate here in NJ is currently above 1. Which means that the virus is still expanding.
Frankly, I think we need to see a number below 1 before we can really start talking about reopening schools. Whatever, I’m not the expert, nor do I have any influence over the decisions being made.
I am a little stressed thinking about it, though. And when I’m stressed, I either go to my garden or bake a dessert. Or both.
Which leads me to this.
Tres Leches cake, anyone?
Can you guess what this herb is? It’s not the usual run-of-the-mill herb you get from the store, that’s for sure. Here’s another hint: Where it comes from, it’s used much like cilantro. That’s all I’m going to say. Let’s see how well you know your herbs.
