Cooking Mama 2 by Nintendo Well, here’s a switch on video games! No shooting, no car crashes, just a little culinary savoir faire for the 5- to 7-year-old set. It’s “Cooking Mama 2” for the handheld Nintendo DS. We haven’t played it ourselves – Wii bowling is more our speed – but it looks like big fun. And the culinary motif inspired this week’s question – what’s in your kid’s lunch box? (Plus, we’re really, really bored with our own brownbag creations, so we’re looking for ideas!)

You guys remember how this works, right? (We know Cathy knows – she won last week’s kids’ books contest!) Click “comments,” answer the question and we’ll draw a winner Friday night.

    Hello! My son is probably older than the rest of the commentators, thus his lunch will be somewhat different!
    We buy the “Jimmy John’s” extra loaf or two of bread. Then, we cut it in 3 equal section. He take some type of sub sandwich we create for him almost every day! The, the extras will vary from fruit snack bites, baked chips, an apple, etc. He takes a water bottle to drink. Please enter me in your wonderful drawing. Thanks very much!
