Color evokes emotion and memories. It can evoke a scent even without the presence of scent there. How do you see color in your daily life? Do you see patterns and repetition of it during certain times of the year? Do you wear red all year long or only in December? What about orange?
I've been cooking with orange....what with sweet potatoes and butternut squash, pumpkin bread. Orange is so indicitive of fall, lighting up the trees and the sky and the ground with orange, red and pink swaths of bold color. It's warm, when the days and nights are getting colder. It's in warm plaids and tangerine fleece, and evidently, it's also in mango pudding.
And mango pudding steams. Pretty.
