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. 

This week I bought my first bunch of ramps, which means it's ramps all day, every day. For Walker and Addison's lunches, I sautéed the ramps over high heat to brown them a bit and just barely cook them through. Meanwhile, I blanched asparagus and cooked wheat berries in salted water until soft. To complete the salad, I folded together the wheat berries, sliced asparagus, chopped ramps, and chopped toasted cashews with a dressing made from sherry vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and olive oil. On top of the salad, I added a few slices of leftover roasted chicken. And for dessert, I whipped up a rhubarb quasi-galette—filling a pie pan with dough and this filling, then simply folding in the edges (a speedy cheat, by the way).
