I love the color orange. I love every hue of it, from peach to melon to tangerine to (my personal favorite) terra cotta. Orange is a happy color. It's a step out of the box color. Not everyone likes orange. Not everyone can wear orange. It's sort of the oddball of the color wheel. It makes pefrect sense that I would like it. I'm sort of the oddball in the color wheel of life.
So orange is my theme color for 2010. To start the year, I made a Happy New Year basket of goodies for my mom. Nothing fancy, just some orangey stuff all stuck together with orangey decorations.
I bought some oranges, orange juice, and orange marmalade. Mom loves peanut butter and marmalade sandwiches on raison bread. I made a tangelo pomander and wrapped it in yellow netting to match Mom's yellow kichen. I tied it with a little orange, of course. It bursts with the fragrance of citrus mixed with clove. I love that smell. I really need to make one for my own kitchen next.
I tried a new recipe for Cream Cheese Orange Bread. Absolutely yummy. It's a keeper. All in all, a simple but fun way to start the new year. I think this theme color thing could be really fun.
Note to self: ORANGE does not photograph so well.
Oh well, neither do I.
