Today's glimpse into the twins' lunch is making us jealous, yet again. Here's Amanda:

Sandwiches made from the best sandwich bread ever created, Balthazar brioche bread, homemade aioli (made the night before for some roasted fish and potatoes), sweet lettuce leaves, and smoked ham. And by the way, yes, my kids complain about their lunches just like every other kid in the world does.

But when a lunch like this is topped off with a chocolate cookie (also from Balthazar), who could find room to complain?

Looks like a tasty, albeit not so healthy lunch. I find that it is not difficult to make something delicious with enough salt, fat and sugar. The challenge is to make a great kid's meal that is tasty, interesting and healthy.

Well, I'd certainly complain about not having a few more cookies :-)

hee! me too. When I was little, my lunches were sometimes biscotti (in my Scooby Doo lunch box) and cafelatte (in my Charlie Brown thermos.)
