I forgot to buy cilantro for guacamole. I don't think there's anything that can substitute for it, either. Usually I forget the limes. Guacamole is pretty touchy stuff, and it's not a good idea to experiment too much with it, but I think I'll try just mixing some prepared salsa into it. The brand I have has a little bit of cilantro in it, I think.
Now that the rain is over, I can smell the jasmine again. The rain was mostly gentle, so the flowers didn't take a beating. The scent ought to grow stringer as the weather warms up, so the heat still has that compensation at least, for now. Once the jasmine dies back, the heat will just be heat. I'm really not looking forward to summer.
