remember when i told you the way to mr. handsome’s heart is through bacon. well, it just so happens if you want to break news to him, like for instance you spent too much money at the mall, bacon is the perfect aromatic solution.
and so on this very monday, the day that i may have spent too much money on jeans and crop tops, i made the house smell of a bacon in order to deflect the obvious and cushion the blow.
warm bacon potato salad for the win.
