It might look like the finale at a fireworks extravaganza, but it is actually the head of a dandelion gone to seed.
It's been cool and damp for several days and work has been a little overwhelming as it is the end of the first fiscal quarter of the year. That said, there was a good meal tonight that consisted of some carrots and shallots and a chicken breast. The chicken was pan seared and then finished in the oven and there was a tarragon, cream pan sauce to go over the top.
The wine was the last bottle of the Gianfranco Alessandria 2006 Dolcetto D'Alba. Good wine, nice price, easy to drink. Who could ask for more?
Below is another picture of the same dandelion.
