Every year, not necessarily regularly, but more than once, I’ve thrown an epic party known as This Is Why You’re Fat. It’s basically a giant pot luck of all your favorite fattening foods. It’s amazing. There’s always a different theme mostly based on what we decide to put in our chocolate fountain (for the record, it’s never been chocolate).
I can’t divulge what this years fountain will contain, as it’s always a surprise/game-time decision. We have some ideas though and I’m sure it’ll be delicious, as usual. I’m posting this blog because this year, we’re basing the entire party around me, and my 30th birthday. As such, we’re asking that all foods be based around my personal favorite foods. So as such, I’ve made up a little list of my favorite and least favorite foods.
Without further adieu, here’s the list. I tried to think of as many of my favorite things as possible so that you had a wide variety to work with. I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
I’ve also included this little link to my pinterest “This is Why You’re Fat” Board in hopes to get some ideas generating for you all.

*Let it be known that I have no included healthy things that I don’t like. Why? Because healthy things shouldn’t be part of your dish, people. Berries? Lemon? Grapefruit? Couscous? Asparagus? None of these things should be included either, just for the record.
** Mayonnaise and Sour Cream are acceptable if mixed in with things so that I can’t taste them.
