Who likes Panera?
The first time I went was in Chicago a few years ago and I’m so glad it’s made it to Arizona!
One of my favorite soups is their broccoli cheese soup – so good (unlike our classic broccoli cheddar soup, but just as good)! ! Yes, we still go for meals, but now I can always make soup at home because this recipe tastes just like it! Alas!
If you’re as addicted to this soup as we are, then I think you’ll be as excited as we are. 😀 I think I’ll make some next week and put them in a sourdough bread bowl! ! In fact, we might stop at Panera and grab some of their bread bowls because I have a hard time finding them at the grocery store. 😉
