HI, pals! Happiest of Sundays!! It’s gonna be a good one because I’m wearing my Sunday’s-best; black yoga pants with one of my husband’s white t-shirts. Bring on the food!!

I have to confess. There’s a song that keeps on playing itself in my head, especially this week. It goes a lil’ something like this:

“Back to liiiiife! Back to reeeealityyyy!
However do you want me! However do you need me!”

Can I just say that life is not as easy as it was 12 days ago? There’s a person in this house that goes to school. Full time! And just because I am now with only one kid for a full 8 hours, that does not mean that I can just put my feet up, sip my coffee and watch Real Housewives reruns all morning long. I learned that the hard way.

Somehow, there’s more to do because when Ana gets home, there’s all these papers I have to look through, AND they (as in her teachers), want me to, like, help her and stuff… Things are definitely not how I thought they would be. Suddenly, last year’s preschool days sound SO MUCH better.

That’s my confession. I just need to learn how to get into the groove of doing school-work. (AGAIN?? BUT I did it for 20+ years!!! WAAAAAH!)

Okay. Now we can talk about Stuffed Zucchini and how I love thee.

      Hi Kristina!! I didn’t do that, but you definitely can. Just fry it up together with the corn. Hope that helps! Have a great Sunday! 🙂

    Our Zucchini has not come up yet, but our yellow squash is over the top. Everyone is sick of me giving them some. I did this with yellow summer squash and fresh corn it was DELISH. So sick of putting up squash relish. If anyone has some good squash ideas, let me know. I just tried cucumber chips and squash chips and canned them together with dill like pickles. Other than the squash being yellow, you cant tell the difference.

    1. Deborah Niskin

      Try freezing these on parchment paper and the in freezer bags with the air removed. I ddi and they were a good last minute dinner.

  2. Valerie

    I made these last night for dinner and they where delicious!! Thank you so much for the recipe! I really suggest anyone who is wanting to try this to DO IT!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

  3. Laura

    We really enjoyed these. I cut the recipe in half for two people. I had a half a can of black beans leftover from a previous meal, I tossed in the mixture, as well as some of the zucchini flesh I’d scooped out.

      Hi Edwin!

      Thanks so much for catching that! It’s fixed now.
      So you want to crumble the bacon and add it back in the pan just as the cream cheese melts. Hope that helps. :)) Again, thank you!

  6. Laura (Tutti Dolci)
