Summer is over and Walker and Addie are back in school as first graders. But the school bell's ring doesn't just mean homework -- it also means that Amanda's Kids' Lunch is back. Look out for our weekly peek into their lunchboxes every week! Here's Amanda:

Still keeping summer alive, so I started off the school year with corn, yellow bean, green bean, and red onion salad, dressed with olive oil and sherry vinegar. Also, German potato salad. Topped it all with crumbled goat cheese. Some Triscuits on the side, for crunch. And a salted caramel from Hey! Caramel in Brooklyn. I like candy with wax wrappers like this -- the ritual of opening the candy is part of the joy of eating it!
