Star Trek Into Darkness : An Edible Geekery Blog Hop

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Edible Geekery. Its mission: to explore strange new culinary tools, to seek out new foods and new combinations, to boldly go where no lunch has gone before. Join us as we travel through the dark reaches of fridge space and into the light of the school (or work) cafeteria and warp speed ahead until you dock back here. Damn it Jim, I'm a mom, not a torpedo technician!

The NCC-1701 Enterprise 
Spock: Captain, this ship will not fit.
[the ship scrapes through]
James T. Kirk: See, I told you it would fit!
Spock: I am not sure that qualifies.
In this lunch :
  • Black beans and rice outer space
  • Provolone and string cheese Enterprise - I used food coloring and a food-safe paint brush for the fine tip though you could achieve the same with edible markers
Scotty: The ship's dead, sir! She's gone!
James T. Kirk: No, she's not...

Science Officer Mr. Spock
Khan: Mr. Spock. The mind of the Enterprise. The fearless genius who ensures a calm force of intelligence guides their every mission. But look deeper and you will see an outsider who does not belong, a man of two worlds. This tears him apart, the constant battle between what he thinks and what he feels. What does he do? Does he follow his head, embracing logic and the path of reason? Or does he follow his heart, knowing the emotions he cannot control may destroy him? I will help him decide... 
In this lunch :
  • Ham sandwich with provolone Spock
  • Wheat crackers
  • Carrots and Star Trek emblem
  • Star Trek strawberries and blue berries
Spock: I will be brief. In your travels, did you ever encounter a man named Khan?
Spock Prime: As you know I have made a vow never to give you information that could potentially alter your destiny. Your path is yours to walk and yours alone. That being said, Khan Noonien Singh is the most dangerous episode the Enterprise ever faced. He is brilliant, ruthless and he will not hesitate to kill every single one of you.
Spock: Did you defeat him?
Spock Prime: At great cost, yes.

Now travel at warp speed to Jessie at Chaos and Confections and see what  she has discovered.
