Bacon Onion Soup

I love to eat and my best recipes are created when I'm on a diet. No, they are not always low in calories. But I hate giving up foods I love, and I strongly believe, and know, that if you calories count, you can eat anything and still lose weight.

Here's the recipe for my dinner today.
