Use Paint Sample to Show Cooking Colors

Ever share a recipe that requires cooking to a particular color (eg., a Roux)? Instead of trying to share your recipe with the instruction to cook to "coffee color", "banana color", or "dead oak leaf color" do this: The next time you are near a paint department, get one of the paint samples that is as close to the color you mean and attach it to the recipe. Now your friend knows what color is desired.
