Amanda's Kids' Lunch

By • March 29, 2012 • 4 Comments

What's for lunch in the twins' lunchboxes today? Looks like a really good one!

The grain salad you see is couscous with citrus, thyme, and raisins -- a riff on this contest runner up from the first FOOD52 cookbook -- and it's topped with good-quality oil-packed tuna. A kale salad (looks like Lacinato) rounds out the meal, and for dessert it's chocolate cake. Specifically, it's the Community Pick Chocolate and Cabernet Sauvignon Italian Cake. It was made with pinot noir, but yes, the wine is cooked!

What's for lunch today? Anyone else have chocolate cake in their plans?

Spoiling the children and bribing the teacher, eh?

That lacinato kale salad with israeli couscous and olive oil and cake combination looks perfect. I love the idea of the pinot noir chocolate cake for school lunch. Is it jarred tuna?

Amanda is a co-founder of Food52.

Yes -- it's tuna in oil from a jar. Glad you like the cake choice -- sent in a slice for the teacher, too!
