If you want to be sneaky, conniving, underhanded and try to surprise your wife. . . DON'T MARRY A SMART AND BEAUTIFUL WOMAN!!!

Before I even got the glaze on the bacon she had figured out what I was up to! :shock:

I saw this some time back and have wanted to make them ever since: Bacon Roses!

Of course, included are a few other non-BBQ related photos.

I Made a little desert for my wife the other night:

Cronuts: A croissant cut and fried like a donut. Quick, easy and delicious!
Image

Cupcakes: My wife has a talent for working with food too! :D She was making these this morning while I was smoking bacon.

Wow - I've never seen anything at all like that. Great job, Bob! :bbq:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Very cool, Bob! But was bacon the only thing you had in the smoker? That would be so unlike you... :wink:

I know you won't believe me if I told you so, but, yes... a 24 oz. package of thick cut bacon was the only thing in the smoker. Took a little over three hours to make these, start to finish and I was trying to fly under the radar. She was going to be out of the house delivering cupcakes during the assembly. BUT... I got caught. :roll:

Super Genius!
My wife's into the whole gourmet, make your own cup cake, thing and she makes some great ones! Fully from scratch - no mixes or canned frostings allowed. She just discovered parchment cupcake cups and they make a huge difference. Just finished last week's, and I mean a week ago last Sunday's, batch. She had only made 4 1/2 dozen. Told her at $3 per, that's what I paid the day before, off of a gourmet cupcake food truck, that she had $162 worth of cupcakes lined up on the counter.
She is also our chief ice cream maker - she's afraid to let me, with my affinity to combine flavors or experiment, get near the ice cream maker. I've only got a rich dark coffee, almost maybe an expresso, ice cream mix, with bean coursely ground mixed in, maybe a little home made hot fudge, and Rum Chata laced in or a Banana Split with fresh bananas, pineapple, & strawberries in a light coffee or mocha or light chocolate ice cream mix, home made hot fudge, finely ground pecans, and Rum Chata laced in. Top either with a good dollop of fresh made whipped cream. She might let me use the ice cream maker this weekend.
She slacked this past Sunday and only made a double recipe fresh cherry and double recipe fresh blueberry cobbler. No ice cream.

You probably won't believe this either... she only charged about .50¢ per cup cake! :shock: We usually don't charge family of friends for our time (or overhead). If I cook for someone, they buy the meat and I usually end up footing for the spices, foil, wood, etc... :lol:

"Gourmet" cupcakes have gotten to be big business in the Chicago area and they go anywhere from $3 to about $4.50 per cupcake. My wife bakes for family and we don't charge them - although there's one or two that I should charge admission just to walk through the front door.
I do charge my wife's boss and salesman to smoke fish. I get 25% of what they bring me to smoke. My time, my cure or brine, my smoker and smoke wood. Works great for all of us - I don't fish and they don't have smokers.
