It's a cross between summer and Meatless Monday in the twins' lunchboxes today -- although those apples are an omen of fall! We'll let Amanda explain:

You'll be hearing from the staff at FOOD52 every week in Too Many Cooks, our group column in which we pool our answers to questions about food, cooking, life, and more.

Summer is finally here and the getting is good at the farmers' market -- it seems like everything worth eating is in season!

Sure, maybe Kristen picked radishes, and Amanda picked Roma beans, but the rest of us basically kept to the same favorites.

Here they are below. What is our list missing? What are your favorites? Tell us in the comments!
