You can find oddball photos in the oddest places (imagine that)!  This one was discovered and captured when I threw out my tea bags one morning.  They and the eggs shells are resting on a bed of shredded paper.  Sound a bit like something on a menu:

A proprietary combination of tea bags and warm brown eggs shells on a bed of delicately shredded paper.”



  1. Dina says:

    Great idea with the menu, sounds very sophisticated! 😀
    Love, Dina

    • Have you ever read a menu description that said something along the lines of: “Mediocre hamburger with only a few bits of lettuce on a white bread bun which has nothing nutritious in it. Flabby fries (but lots of fat.) Enjoy!” ? 🙂 They can make anything sound good.


  2. Hahaha. Only a blogger would take a photo like this. 😀

  3. “A proprietary combination of tea bags and warm brown eggs shells on a bed of delicately shredded paper”

    How long do you bake it for? Or do you serve it raw? Any side dishes or sauces?
    What do you do for dessert? 😉

    That was unexpected! Fun. I was sure it was a duck embryo (Balut0 that I just saw a couple of days ago as people were experiementing eating Asian food they were unfamiliar with- I really like your shot, Janet!

    Now you’ve me curious enough to want to look in my compost & bokashi bins to see what artpieces I might have inadvertently produced. 😀

    Totally cool. I keep looking at the teabags thinking itbis some sort of dinosaur… just hatched in a homemade nest of shredded paper. (Yes, i have been watching Jurassic Park lately;)

    This is actually a pretty cool photo. I would never have thought of it. Wonderfully creative.

  9. Breakfast ??? LOL GREAT creativity, Janet. I like your entry very much. 😎

  10. Honestly, only you could make garbage look so artistic! The sad thing is that I honestly can see that description becoming the basis for some fancy restaurant dish. Sheesh…

    • I’ve always thought it must be fun to write menus for restaurants, but some of the fancy ones are a bit much and rather funny. But when I looked in there, I thought too that it looked pretty cool.


What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
