a bouquet for him // cook

Now that Valentine's Day is over and Tim has received his gift, I can post about it! 
Okay seriously, this was the easiest gift ever, and it was received VERY well. I mean, who doesn't love bacon? Not Tim, that's for sure.
Coil the bacon up in a roll and place on a foil-lined cookie sheet, fatty side down. I put mine on top of a cooling rack, so the bacon wasn't sitting in its own fat. Your choice.
Place in a 400* oven and bake for 25 minutes.
{make sure all windows are open and the fans are running. You'll set off the smoke alarms otherwise. Trust me}
You will also need a bouquet of fake flowers. While the bacon is baking, remove the heads from your flowers. You want them to look like this:
You'll want the stems sticking up out of the "base" pretty far, to support the weight of the bacon buds.
Once the bacon is cooked and cooled, stick them on as far as they'll go. Arrange them in a pretty vase {even though he won't notice it to save his life} and that's it!
I was so happy this turned out so well. I'm glad I didn't decide to do a dozen of these because they were gone right away. {I helped, of course; it was only fair. YUM!}. Tim was so excited I forgot to give him the card that was supposed to go with it:
What do you think?
