I stopped by Panera Bread the other day for a quick lunch. First thing that caught my eye was the Sweet and Savory Vegetable Autumn Squash Soup. I know, that’s a mouthful in itself, but just wait until you taste this rich, filling bowl of heaven.
Every spoonful is delicious. A fall must-try.
I ordered a Spiced Latte to go for $4.50. Happy Fall!
