Fatburger "Fat Club" Card

Fatburger is the type of establishment that is hard to describe with words, one should have the experience of visiting one of their locations. Pictured above is a "Fat Club" card from a few years back that the housekeeping staff here at the FP Test Kitchens found behind a file cabinet.

Just in time for our 50th anniversary, we have achieved this culinary and technological feat with our HoneyBaked's Deep Glazed Ham."

Fat Pride Pioneer
Marvin Grosswirth
Ancient Scrolls Author

Lawrence, our new staff member in our research department began his 'probationary' period here with some fantastic history on 'Fat Pride'. In 1972, this man authored "Fat pride: A survival handbook". While we found this book for sale online and have allready ordered a copy, it is still a mystery to us. We are unsure of what we find in this book and if perhaps we have found the 'Grandfather' of this phrase.
We will be doing a follow-up post shortly.

Homemade Enchiladas
Extreme Close-up Image

The staff here has been debating our imaging practices and have been experimenting with different angles, lighting and camera settings. Above we have what was a truly excellent cheese enchilada with onions on top. It was taken with the close-up camera settings. We think this may help to better share the goodness of our 'Foodstuff of The Week' posts. Your input is much needed please.

Support Our Friends
Mini Banners O' Plenty

The staff here decided to pay tribute to some of our favorite foodstuff sites by making mini-linkers for them as you see above. They will now all be in a nice row at the bottom of every paghe of The Fat Pride Times.

Please Help Promote
The Fat Pride Times

Add A Mini Button
To Your Webpage

Our recent Board of Directors meeting concluded with an idea of offering a mini-banner link image that maybe our supporters would put on their websites. We also would like to start a campaign for like-minded websites to also offer a same-size linker image for their sites. Should work in a quid-pro-quo manner, we all put up the link tabs for any site that does the same for yours. This is common on the web for niche groups and the buttons look nice stacked in a strip. Please save the demo logo above and link it to us here in your html. Together we are strong. Anyone needing help with coding/html/image making just leave a comment or send along an email for help.

Reader Shares New Kitchen
Photos and Story
Nice Eating Arena

Wow, what a job! My Dad and I finished the entire kitchen floor in 5
days time, finished Sunday night at 9 pm! It looks totally awesome!
As you will see from the before and after pictures. The linoleum they
put in the trailer was pure crap, like everything else in this mobile
home. It wasnt even glued to the floor and it tore like tissue paper.

The floor underneath was in good shape, wasnt rotted out like I
assumed it was, it was just bending where there was no floor support
underneath it, but the hardibacker board I put down fixed that. Then
all the tile, and it turned out great, considering this was my first
attempt! Only a couple minor flaws that few people would really

Anyone wanting to put down tile, man, go for it! I would love
to help! It was truly a great adventure to me, and I got a great
sense of accomplishment from it. And I would tell anyone who wants
to try laying tile, to do it! It was hard work, but very fun!

All comments welcome!

Thanksgiving Sandwich
Step by Step Assembly

Our Las Vegas Correspondant has sent along pictures and instructions on how to make one mighty turkey sandwich. Respect.

Ingredients needed: Hoagie Rolls, Turkey, Cranberry Sauce, Stuffing & Mayonnaise

First I cut the hoagie roll in half, and scrape out the excess bread from the top piece. Then spread stuffing in the dug out top piece of bread. Then add a nice layer of cranberry sauce on top of the stuffing. Then add turkey on top of that. Spread the Mayo on the bottom piece of bread. Cut in half and you are done.

Nuff Said.
