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, Thursday is all about tuna salad sandwiches with a few tweaks. I mixed oil-packed tuna with celery, dill, chopped peppadews, and smoked paprika, and I dressed it all with red wine vinaigrette, mayonnaise, and Dijon. I was feeling pretty happy about my little creation until my son walked by and asked, "What's that bad smell?" It must have been the smoked paprika that alarmed him -- we'll see after school, when I unpack his lunchbox.

One thing I know he'll eat: the Tumbador chocolate with praline and chile.
