“It Takes a Village to Pack a Lunch – 2011 Edition:” Gourmet Sandwich Ideas from Melissa Clark

While I’m sad that the Borders book store chain is going out of business, I was happy to go to our Borders over the weekend and snag a 60% off hardback copy of Melissa Clark’s (relatively) new cookbook, In the Kitchen with A Good Appetite:  150 Recipes and Stories About the Food You Love.  (If you don’t already know Melissa Clark, she’s the author of “A Good Appetite,” a wonderful cooking column that appears in the New York Times Dining section, as well as the author or co-author of numerous cookbooks.)

It seems Melissa must have heard about TLT’s “It Takes a Village to Pack a Lunch” series  :-) , as today her column (“Here’s Eating Lunch With You, Kid”) is a collection of delicious, unusual sandwiches to make for your child’s lunch box, along with simple variations to make a second version of the same sandwich for adult palates.  (Example:  kids get a Turkey and Apple Sandwich with Maple Mayonnaise, adults get the same sandwich with a squirt of spicy Sriracha sauce.)

Some of these sandwiches are a little fancy and might need some advanced planning for the morning lunch box rush, but they all look pretty delicious.  Cheddar, Cucumber and Marmalade sandwiches?  I’m feeling inspired!
