Today's lunchboxes reveal a Middle Eastern influence for Walker's and Addie's lunches. There's stuck-pot rice (it's simple: basmati, yogurt, curry powder, and lime juice), a celery and Israeli cucumber salad (remember, Walker loves cucumbers!), and Fage yogurt with honey.

What are you having for lunch?

Amanda - what kind of containers do you use to send your kids' lunches in? Are they bento boxes or something else? Thanks!

I am having "stress" which is made with stale bread, leftover almonds, and a massive pot of thickly-brewed coffee. <3

Another great lunch, I love the stuck pot basmati!

I find that kids love textures, and stuck pot rice has the perfect mix of crisp and chewy and soft.
