Amanda's Kids' Lunch

March 29, 2012

What's for lunch in the twins' lunchboxes today? Looks like a really good one!

The grain salad you see is couscous with citrus, thyme, and raisins -- a riff on this contest runner up from the first FOOD52 cookbook -- and it's topped with good-quality oil-packed tuna. A kale salad (looks like Lacinato) rounds out the meal, and for dessert it's chocolate cake. Specifically, it's the Community Pick Chocolate and Cabernet Sauvignon Italian Cake. It was made with pinot noir, but yes, the wine is cooked!

Yum! Your kids are so lucky! Can I bring my lunch box over? :) That is one delicious looking lunch. Nice!!

Spoiling the children and bribing the teacher, eh?

That lacinato kale salad with israeli couscous and olive oil and cake combination looks perfect. I love the idea of the pinot noir chocolate cake for school lunch. Is it jarred tuna?
Amanda H. March 29, 2012
Yes -- it's tuna in oil from a jar. Glad you like the cake choice -- sent in a slice for the teacher, too!
