  1. I love the connection of food(s) with color. It also happens to be two of my favorite things; food & color. Just as we can bring back a memory of an event with the colors, we can remember a meal at someone’s home or in a restaurant, with the colors.
    Thank you for giving me an appetite at lunch time!
