Remember months ago when I asked you (on Facebook) if you wanted me to start posting about products, kitchen gadgets and other misc. things I like? You probably do because you all overwhelmingly said yes.
And then remember how I never posted anything? Yeah, that sucked right?
Well, I am finally starting that post series and I am calling it, “Things I Like”.
A friend of mine has an adorable blog called “Things I Like” where she posts about random things she likes – like recipes and mostly her insanely cute, smart and sassy daughter. Isn’t imitation the best form of flattery? I think so and since every time I swing by Andrea’s site I feel happy, I decided to keep it simple and stick with what makes sense and makes me happy.
I plan to mix up Thursdays a bit and alternate between “Things I Like” and “Guest Blogger of the Week”. A great suggestion from a reader who emailed me and asked me to please, please, please start posting about products and what not. So thank you Leslie T.
Ok, enough with all that – let’s get to some Things I Like…
I am really liking freezer composting.
I HATE bugs. I HATE them in the house. I especially dislike ants and fruit flies and I definitely don’t want them in my kitchen. Which is why we started freezer composting in the first place – our countertop composter was a fruit fly magnet.
So far this freezer composting bin is working great. My only complaint is the size. I just wish it was slightly larger. I feel like we are emptying it every day but in all fairness we do cook a lot so maybe that is just par for the course.
Some other things I like about it.
It was inexpensive.
It is silicone and easy to clean.
I can pull it out of the freezer when prepping and cooking, leave it on the kitchen island and toss waste directly into it.
I do feel lucky that we live in a city that encourages urban composting and provides a special receptacle to collect it on a weekly basis. Some neighbors even have compost piles (in addition to fruit and vegetable gardens, chickens, goats and bees). We don’t and so far it has been easy to empty directly into our biodegradable Food Waste Bags.
So far so good. Anyone else freezer compost? Or have a compost pile?
