I'm Learning To Love The Color Brown....

I'm learning to love the color brown ...
you see I'm very affected by color
 and I know what I like and don't
for instance orange is not a fav
and yellow is not top on my list either.
don't get me wrong - I love daffodils, the centers
of a fresh daisy in bloom, forsythia, a perky Gerber in
bright orange, a juicy, sweet orange or tangerine.

now I like brown
yup, I do, I do!

1/3 cup sugar 1/4 cup       HERSHEY'S Cocoa 1 envelope unflavored gelatin 2 cups nonfat milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon orange extract 1-1/2 cups frozen light non-dairy whipped topping, thawed Additional whipped topping (optional) fresh orange wedges (optional)

1 Stir together sugar, cocoa and gelatin in medium saucepan. Stir in milk; let stand 2 minutes to soften gelatin.
2 Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is completely dissolved, about 5 minutes.
