Tips: I call this soup, because you need bowls! the Zucchini makes it very soupy and delicious! But you cant skip the layers of cheese and just make it a soup, or you will loose alot of flavor!

      oh awesome! We LOVE bacon, it makes things taste SO yummy! 🙂 but we eat it in moderation, it’s not the healthiest food item when a person has too much of it 😛 Yep, see you next week, have a good one 🙂
