Rubber Leaf Lettuce

Does any one really eat it anyways?

I mean really. I used to work in a Mexican restaurant as a cook, and we would use/waste so much leaf lettuce. Most dishes would have it under the condiments (cheese, sour cream, pico de gallo) to add to the presentation. And in the end it would come back with the plate and be tossed in the trash.

Why waste? Reusable Rubber Leaf Lettuce is what we need. No one really eats it. Run it through the dish tank and reuse. Chill before serving. Have it pre-molded to have 1, 2, or 3 little cups.

Think about it next time you eat out.

       your rubber leaf lettuce sounds really tasty. I'll try it.

       What about the opposite idea -- growing a special, rubbery kind of lettuce to serve as plates, bowls, etc. No one would eat it, but it would be biodegradable. You could take your lunch to the park and then just toss the leaf aside...

       The squirrels would probably toss it back at you.

       Though in a different realm altogether, a name for rubber lettuce is "bad check"

       But it would bounce! Could double as a frisbee-type toy until it biodegraded.

       Yes. On hamburgers and sandwiches.

       I had a friend whose grandmother would squish the parsley through ketchup 'so they couldn't use it again'.
