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.

My kids like what they call "snacky lunches" -- a few slivers of this and a little mound of that, a miniature smorgasbord. Today's snacky lunch was peppers and fennel braised/sautéed in olive oil, roasted cauliflower, cubes of fresh mozzarella (leftover from pizza night), a scroll of smoked ham, and radish wedges (for a little crunch). For dessert, I made thirschfeld's Breton Butter Cake (the version made with all-purpose flour) -- which has inspired a butter cake fixation. Brace yourselves for a few more versions in the coming weeks!
