Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration.

Sometimes my home cooking and lunch menus are guided by mistakes. This week, that mistake would be ordering, oh, 4 too many bunches of Italian parsley from Fresh Direct. What to do with so much parsley? Make green sauce, of course! (This version, but with a higher proportion of parsley, plus a handful of basil, and lemon juice in place of the vinegar.) We're having green sauce with everything -- on salad, on roasted pork shoulder, on cereal. And for lunch, Walker and Addison are having it on chicken fingers and roasted potatoes. What's better than a lunch that involves dipping? For dessert: chocolate cookies from Balthazar and salty black licorice, made by Quin for Provisions.

This is SO CLOSE to being a bento! Sorry, couldn't resist. Good call on the green sauce!
