Having hit the emotional and color low on Brown Day, and with the end in sight, and
with a refrigerator full of colorful leftovers that might not last much longer, we were energized and ready to hit Black and White Day with everything we had.
Breakfast started with White Gazpacho
(made from almonds, cucumbers, and asian pears)
Onion and White Mushroom Frittata
Eric wore a black-and-white houndstooth check shirt, while Christy just wore black, figuring she's white enough. Mitch wore his favorite creative commons
sweatshirt and keffiyeh
.Onion and White Mushroom Frittata:
Finely chop a white onion, a handful of garlic, and white mushrooms.
Saute onion with garlic until soft, then add the mushrooms. (Of course, we forgot how brown the mushrooms can turn - removing the gills would keep them whiter.)
Turn the pan down to low, add the egg whites, and go take your shower. Come back in 15-25 minutes, and when the center has just solidified put the pan under the broiler for a few seconds to finish the top.
Turn on your black-and-white playlist (who knew there were so many versions of that Michael Jackson song in our archives?), wear your black-and-white gear, and eat your matching breakfast.
