Panera Bread Favorites + A $100 Panera Gift Card Giveaway!



One of my favorite places to eat is Panera Bread.
I was so excited when a Panera Bread opened up a few minutes from our house last year.
Our girls were excited also because it has one of their favorite things...
 Cinnamon Crunch Bagels.
Have you had this bagel before? It is topped with cinnamon and sugar. Yum.
This is one of my all-time favorite bagels (same with my girls)
Bagels are their love language. They eat bagels 3-4 times a week. 
I owe this to the fact that when I was pregnant bagels were one of the only things I could keep down.
My girls love to go get bagels as a special treat, like after church or after school.
When I have 1 on 1 time with my girls, chances are we will end up going to get a bagel.

Panera Bread has more than just bagels... they have delicious sandwiches & salads, too!
 Kevin's favorite is the Chipotle Chicken Panini.
It is one of Panera's Panini Sandwiches. It is delicious.
It has applewood-smoked bacon, smoked cheddar cheese, tomatoes and ancho-chipotle spread grilled on French Bread.
I always steal a bite or 2 or 3 of it ;)

Panera Bread also has a great variety of salads. I love their Thai Chicken Salad.

Delicious!

  35. When my oldest daughter was younger, we would buy her a McDonald's ice cream every time she scored a goal. Now that she is a teenager, every time she scores a goal ALL SHE WANTS is a baguette from Panara. So, no matter what city we are playing in, we always seem to be searching for a Panara to buy her a baguette.

    Hugs,
    Trisha
