Way to nerd that up…

Leigh has started another blogging event: The Not Only Breakfast Club. The first theme is nerdy food. That’s right up our alley!

Hubby and I are engineers. We’re pretty much about as nerdy as it gets. We both got degrees in Aeronautical engineering. Our families like to say we’re rocket scientists even though neither of us work in rocketry. A lot of our friends are also enginerds. We often have to call each other out for “nerding” something up. You know, when someone takes it to that next level of nerdiness.

Some non-nerds can’t handle the nerdiness that we can bring to a party. One day after work, we were hanging out with my big bro and his fiancee. Big bro is an enginerd as well. Future sister in law asked if we knew what big bro was talking about when he said he writes “code” all day. I think she was looking for sympathy from us. We laughed and said of course we knew. In fact, I write code about 40 hours a week at work!

Anyways, back to the food. I saw this and almost laughed out loud. Take a look at it. Do you think this food is nerdy?

Come on, you can’t even handle how nerdy this food is. If you don’t see why this guacamole is nerdy, you are clearly not a nerd. Who remembers high school chemistry? Remember Avogadro’s magic number? 6.02×10^23 molecules in a mole? I remember struggling with this concept back in high school. Then one day it just all clicked. There aren’t actually even 6 avocado’s in this guac, only 5 in fact, but it’s still a great name for the guac.

Not only is this guacomole perfectly fitting for us, it also tastes AMAZING! And it comes in these two packets so you can save some for later. We threw one packet in the freezer to enjoy later. Definitely grab some the next time you are at TJs.
While I didn’t actually make any nerdy foods, I did use nerdy food in an awesome meal. I used my go-to turkey burger recipe and added a dollop of the nerdy guac and a handfull of sprouts. So tasty! Hubby had his on a bun and I just ate mine without.

    This post made me lol (literally) because my husband’s in the process of getting an Aeronautical Engineering degree :)

    Definitely showing “nerd” boyfriend this. He’ll probably run right over to Trader Joe’s after work. Great catch!

    This is too funny! I haven’t been to TJ’s in a while so I’ve missed the Avocado’s Magic Number. Great find and thanks for sharing!

    My non-nerd g/f sent this to me to see if I’d understand the reference. I’m an EE, so I started laughing as soon as I saw the picture. :) Luckily, I’m used to her odd looks when I start chuckling over something geeky like that. :)
