KFC Freestyle by Cleveland Cavaliers Delonte West

We found this freestyle rap done in the Kentucky Fried Chicken drive thru by the Cleveland Cavaliers Delonte West. West is best known for his "activities" with Lebron James mother. Good thing he is a better ball player than a rapper.

Here is the Taco Tally promotion. If the Las Vegas Wranglers score 5 or more goals in a game, everyone in attendance wins a free taco from Del Taco. This game the Wranglers scored 6 goals total!! On the way out of the arena, people who where at the game where given a coupon for one free classic taco. The FPT endorses this promotion and feels other teams should make the same kind of offers to their fans.

Claim Jumper Creamy Chicken Fettuccine Bake

Thanks for joining us for another Fat Pride Times test kitchen review. This time around we are eating some Claim Jumper Creamy Chicken Fettuccine Bake dish. You can find this dish in the frozen food section most grocery stores. It is a solid dish of food weighing in at one pound.

After letting the creamy chicken bake for around a hour, our dish was hot out of the oven. It comes pretty close with the box picture to actually dish comparison. It is a good dish, tasty, creamy and filling.

Snickers Peanut Butter Squares One Bite or Two?

Ahhh yes, chocolate and peanut butter. We found these new candies at the Kwik-E-Mart a few days ago. Not a bad deal at 2 for $2. We are not sure if they are limited edition, or special in any way.

They are big enough to split into two bites, or one large bite. I suppose that depends on how hungry you are. For your traditional snickers eaters, this may be a bit of a shock. But we think you will be satisfied with the Snickers Peanut Butter Squares.

Christmas 2010 Fat Pride Times Ginger Bread House Gallery

Ginger bread houses can be fun and delicious at the same time. Please enjoy our Ginger bread house photo gallery. There are some great creations! The FPT may have a round-table discussion on whether or not a person is to eat a ginger bread house. Sometimes, it could get a little nassy.

This looks like the downtown of Ginger bread land.

FPT Review Kim and Scotts Gourmet Pizza Pretzels

We here at the FPT love pizza (who doesnt) and we are a big fan of pretzels. That brings us to Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels. After seeing this in the grocers freezer for some time, we decided to make the purchase.

First, the pretzels where baked in the oven for 15 on 400 degrees. The pretzels came out nice and crunchy. After cutting in and taking a bite, we where very surprised. There was hardly any sauce in side, so the pretzel was very dry. And the taste....we can only describe as baked cardboard. Very bland, tasted almost freezer burnt. We suggest staying far away from Kim and Scott's Gourmet Pretzels. Waste of money and time.

Reader Photo: Start of a Food Bender

Everyone loves a food bender!! Recently we received a photo from Red Neck Ricky of his first round of a all night food bender. Ricky will put on either Ted Nugent or KISS while he is bender. He feels he can "bend harder" while rocks out.

We support Ricky on his bender. Not sure how long this bender may last. Ricky one time spent over 24 hours in a Denny's walk-in cooler eating everything he could find.

The Fox Fire Grill Uptown Mac and Cheese

One of our regular contributors Etathed as sent in a picture this great Mac and Cheese dish.

Etathed Says: "Here in the mountain regions of West Virginia lies a ski village with quite a few decent food spots i like to patronize. This plate is an old reliable favorite of mine from The Fox Fire Grill. The Uptown Mac and Cheese is some pasta with loads of cheese, crab meat and shrimp. This is a case of you get what you pay for, Top Dollar, but top shelf. Plus the meal is prider sized.... I turned a recent to go order into 3 full servings, well 2.5 to be exact, but still a great meal all around. And what really sells this dish is its flavor. And GD is it ever cheesy."

This looks like a great dish and could be some of the best looking mac n cheese we have ever seen. Thanks Etathed, and keep the priding up!

Victorville Road Trip Part 2 Los Alazanes Mexican Food

Our 2nd food adventure in Victorville, California was Los Alazanes Mexican Fast Food Restaurant. A full Mexican food kitchen, Tortas to Tacos. We decided to have the chicken taco and the beef taco. The price on the tacos at first seemed a little steep (almost $6.00 for 2 tacos). But once we got them back to the hotel, we where pleasantly surprised.

The chicken taco was large, hard shell with a nice hot red sauce on it. The beef taco was fried with cheese and a nice toasty shell. The salsa bar had a nice jalapeno salsa, and some fresh pico de gallo. Los Alazanes is another Bear Valley exit stop in Victorville that we endorse. They have a large dining area, or take your food with's USA, you have the choice!!

Victorville Road Trip Part 1 Johns Incredible Pizza Co

The FPT went on a road trip this last weekend to the California High Desert. Not sure where we be staying, ended up in Victorville, California. Our first day in town we looked for a local food establishment to sample. Not more than a block from our hotel, we found John's Incredible Pizza Company. We noticed that it was a all you can eat pizza buffet. That pretty much sealed the deal for us.

We went inside and it was more than we could have expected. At least 8 to 10 different pizza to choose from. A salad bar, pasta bar and desserts. John's Pizza is like a Chucky E. Cheese, style restaurant. It has games for the kids, themed eating areas for children and adults.

The pizza slices are small, but that's ok, you can go for back as many as you want. The price of $11.99 we thought was a little steep, that price does include all you drink soda or coffee. If you stop in Victorville, we would suggest John's Incredible Pizza Co. Its right off the Bear Valley exit off of the I-15 Freeway.

Coney Dog Slider Mini Chili Dog

Our latest FPT submission is from our friend Mike E. out in Missoula. Today he sent us a picture and recipe for his Coney Dog Slider Mini Chili Dog. Here is how it was made...

"I took a Nathans Famous Hot Dog (gotta be Nathans) cut them down and cross cut the ends. Wrapped them in Pillsbury croissants and baked till crispy...super bomb"

Here at the FPT, we respect Mike's use of hot dogs, chili and croissants. Please follow Mike at his blog Confessions of a line cook

UPDATE Golden Gate Las Vegas Raises Price on Shrimp Cocktails

This update came to us from one of our correspondents in Las Vegas. We did a story back in 2008 about the shrimp cocktails at the Golden Gate Casino being the best $1 spent in town. It has been brought to our attention that the price on the shrimp cocktails has raised to $1.99. Now we always consider a price increase on food stuffs is never a good thing. But there is one good thing that came out of it. The Golden Gate no longer limits customers to only 2 shrimp cocktails per trip to the counter. So go ahead, throw down a $10 and get yourself 4 shrimp cocktails, tip the cashier with the rest, sit down and have a shrimp feast in one of the oldest casinos in Las Vegas.

Zatarain's New Orleans Style Red Beans and Rice

The FPT latest test kitchen food product is Zatarain's New Orleans Style Red Beans and Rice. Beans and Rice make a great side with BBQ dishes and just about anything. As you can see on the box, the beans and rice look nice. Also there are some red and green looking materials in the rice.

If you are going to make the beans and rice with your meal, make sure you know that they take 25 minutes to cook. As you can see in the cooked picture, the beans and rice are a little runny. We probably could have cooked them just a bit longer, but they came out great. And we don't see any of the red and green items like the box picture.
Overall we suggest the Zatarain's Red Bean and Rice. It has a great flavor, low cost and is easy to make.
