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. 

You may have noticed that my fall-back ingredients are smoked ham and multigrain bread. They're good tasting, healthy, and while not exactly blank slates, you can mix them with countless ingredients. Here I wanted a little crunch and tang so I spooned some pickled beets and horseradish (from a jar) on the other half of the sandwich. For dessert, I cheated. Our test kitchen made Meyer lemon cheesecake and amazingly there were leftovers, so I snagged a couple slices. Keep an eye out for the recipe -- coming to a website near you soon!
