Nachos Bring Families Together

I’m sure we can all agree that nachos, on a personal level, can turn a bad day into a good one. But do nachos have the power to reach more than just the individual? Can nachos bring people together? Richard Tait believes just that. In an article he’s written for ModernMom titled “Minutes to Memories: The Science of Nachos“, Richard shares his experience and explains how nachos have “transform an often stress-filled moment — making dinner — into a family sport.”

First of all. Dude, Richard, seriously… I appreciate the article and everything, but ModernMom? In your defense, I guess the ModernDad Web site pales in comparison.

Aaanywho! Richard confesses that “eight years ago, if you told [him] happiness could be found in a messy mound of nachos, [he] would have smiled politely and looked for the nearest exit. Bliss in a pile of tortilla chips, melted cheese, sour cream, tomatoes and onions? Unlikely.” But now, every Sunday night, Nacho Night, he and his family make nachos, laugh, talk, and connect.

Conclusion: Let’s send some nachos to Iraq.
