Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration.
As previously mentioned, we have a green sauce surplus at home (#firstworldproblems). Turns out that green sauce is a handy companion at 7:30 AM -- ready to be mixed in, dipped in, and spread on sandwiches. I tossed it with some Tunisian couscous (if you've never had this hand-rolled couscous, make a point of trying it) and pistachios, and topped the salad with oil-packed tuna.

Over the weekend, we had Kristy Mucci, a former Food52 editor and now one of our stylists, over for a tea-and-cookies-and-Clark-Gable-movie play date, so I had some leftover currant and caraway shortbread for lunches; and a few chocolate covered Rice Krispies that were hiding in our pantry rounded out the meal.
What's in your lunch today? See some of the twins' past lunches.
Before starting Food52 with Merrill, I was a food writer and editor at the New York Times. I've written several books, including "Cooking for Mr. Latte" and "The Essential New York Times Cookbook." I played myself in "Julie & Julia" -- hope you didn't blink, or you may have missed the scene! I live in Brooklyn with my husband, Tad, and twins, Walker and Addison.
