Amanda's Kids' Lunch from Food52

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.
