Now that that's explained, let's begin.
Step one: Eat eggs for breakfast. Yum. Just think of how delish they are with that cracked black pepper, a little salt - don't forget the sprouted multigrain toast with loads of butter and your Irish breakfast tea.
Step two: Wash out eggshells and dry them with a paper towel. For extra dryness, I put them outside in a glass jar so the hot air could bake them to a crisp.
Step three: Bring them back in the house after about a day (or more if you can stand it). Depends on your crispy-ness level tolerance.
Left: eggshells in jar. Right: handy-dandy mortar and pestle.Step four: Take out your handy-dandy mortar and pestle. WHAT? You don't have one of these? Why not? Ooooh, yes. You have a normal pet, I forgot. Well, never mind, while I am twice to thrice daily crushing pancreatic enzyme pills to a fine fly-up-your-nose powder, you're busy with doing other things. Well then. Go get one.
Step five: Begin crunching.
Notice the lovely pigments.Step six: Crunch a little more.
Oooh, powdery.Step seven: Take pictures. Okay, okay, you can totally skip this step.
A happy family: Eggshell mama, mortar and
pestle daddy, baby egg powder.
Step eight: Go get a blush brush and brush some on. The end. Well, unless you get really carried away with your mortar and pestle and decide to go on to step nine...which is:
Left: crushed dried oats. Right: kid breakfast.
Crush other things because they're laying around and you think it might be fun. I made some oatmeal for the kiddos breakfast and decided that it would be fun to smash dried oatmeal and see what happened. That's what happened. I have no idea what to do with my smashed oat powder, but don't worry, I'll find something.
Do you have any ideas?
