Today's peek into Amanda's kids' lunch shows a decidedly sophisticated deconstructed salad of roasted chicken, arugula, and baby radishes with mustardy mayonnaise on the side. Cheese crackers provide similarly fancified crunch, and apples from the Hesser-Friend family CSA share are a perfect ending to a fall meal.Read More »

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:
There were still peppers and corn in the market so I decided it was time for a stew of them. That was the main course, just glistening sweet pepper stew. On the side, yogurt, and an apple. I figured they could get meat or fish at dinner.

Nicholas Day calls them dinner savers. But they're great for lunch, too! Today in the twins' lunches, we have BELA smoked sardines, gherkins, olives, mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard mixed into a rough spread and layered with arugula on country bread. Turkish apricots and cardamom shortbread round out the meal.

It's all about playing with scale this week in Walker and Addie's lunch. Are those normal-sized sandwiches and giant pretzels? Normal pretzels and enormous grapes? Well, let's let Amanda explain:
We had leftover slider rolls from our last photo shoot, and I figured my kids would love them for sandwiches -- they're just their size. Ham sandwiches are a good canvas for experimenting with new flavors. Here, I layered smoked ham with mayo, anchovy sauce, a slab of green zebra tomato, and arugula. The rest was a snap -- potato chips, pretzels, and Italian plums from the Greenmarket.
Ah, Italian plums. Got it. What's in your lunch today?Read More »
