Amanda's Kids' Lunch Articles
What's in the twins' lunchboxes this week? Take it away, Amanda:
Roasted asparagus and haricots verts, chopped, and topped with wide shavings of pecorino and diced smoked ham. I like to cut things into small bits so they can scoop it up with a spoon, and then use the same spoon for the Fage (whole milk!) yogurt with honey. Oh, and whole grain bread on the side, cut into kid-size triangles.
Looks delicious!Read More »
What are Walker and Addie having for lunch today? Today there's a Mediterranean theme: lentils and bulgur with caramelized onions, a stuffed grape leaf, cucumber salad, and labne. Dessert is Champagne mango -- those sunny yellow cousins of the larger red-and-orange mangoes you're used to -- cut into cubes. A great early spring lunch!Read More »
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?Read More »
What are Walker and Addie having for lunch? Today it's Chicken Cutlets Grilled in Charmoula with Quick-Cured Lemon Confit, a Community Pick from the Your Best Citrus contest, sandwich-ified on sliced bread with kale salad. Apricot rosemary bars from Baked and crisp Macoun apples from the Greenmarket round out dessert.
An enviable meal for early spring! What are you having for lunch today?Read More »
Walker and Addie are two lucky FOOD52ers -- this week's round of testing for our canned fish Community Picks left them flush with options for lunchtime.
Here they're having Sagegreen's Herbed Ricotta and Anchovy Crostini and Halfpint's Lemony Sardine Pate with multigrain bread, Tricuits, and knäckebröd from IKEA. What about after their meal? Says Amanda, "Because it seemed like a vaguely Swedish menu, Swedish fish for dessert!"
