But, still, the most food waste came from them. My kids are picky to some degree, but mostly the problem is they eat like birds.
As for me, I composted a perfectly good slice of onion and a few slices of tomato and lettuce. I just was too lazy to find a home for the food. The biggest throwaway was a head of lettuce that got funky (I wish they sold half heads of lettuce :) and about half a thing of triple cream brie that my husband didn't end up eating and got fuzzy. I had the misfortune of eating some of it Friday night without noticing the fur and spent most of Saturday with really unfortunate stomach pains that I attribute to it.
Anyway, here's the run-down (I'm not including the kid's half-sucked on scraps):
- About a cup and a half of onion and tomato
- One head of lettuce
- 4 oz of brie
