Nicholas gives us a noble use for leftover sweet potatoes, a kid-friendly baking project, and a better turkey sandwich.Read More »
It's a lunchbox cocktail party for Walker and Addie this week, with crudités, cheese, and olives all ready for the snacking. Here's Amanda with the specifics:
I believe in the occasional snacky lunch. For this one I packed soppressata, Castelvetrano olives, Red Leicester cheese, ricotta salata, and purple carrots. To go with, whole wheat bread, a British cheese cracker, and roasted pumpkin seeds.
(No Grüner Veltliner for this set, but we wouldn't pass on a glass to accompany this meal!)Read More »
Here's a lunch we'd happily turn to any day of the week: roasted chicken salad with celery, Dijon, mayo, and tarragon (says Amanda, "chicken and tarragon are besties").
The tiny spoons are just right for 6-year-old hands piling salad on the slices of whole grain bread, and chocolate spice cookies make for a perfect dessert.Read More »

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.
