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!

    • Thanks, Ruth. As I was tossing in the teabags, I thought it looked rather cool. Wish I’d taken one when just the eggshells were in, too. Glad you enjoyed it.

    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.
