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. 

Remember the poached salmon from my last post? I used half of it for that salad, and set some aside for a different lunch. Here, I crumbled it up with some fresh thyme leaves, nestled it in a container with some steamed asparagus and pickled beets, and dressed it all with some olive oil and lemon juice. On the side, bread from one of my favorite bakeries -- Breadzilla -- in the Hamptons, topped with cultured butter. And clementines for some happy color.

seems great. Curious as to what the kids think about it, happy plate? I will copy that for my kiddo and replace the pickled beet with cornichons (his favorite)

They like salmon, so it went over well. And bread and butter are always a winner!

Sure thing -- just bring your insulated animal-themed lunchbox to my apt at 8 am on weekdays.
