I have #PaneraFaves, What Are Yours?

>> Wednesday, February 26, 2014

When you go out to eat, do you order the same meal most times, or -- instead -- do you try something new? I definitely have distinct favorites, especially when it comes to food out at different local and chain restaurants. So, when BlogHer approached me with the opportunity to share my favorite Panera meal, I jumped on the chance; I surely have a go-to.

I'd say we go to Panera a couple times a month when we're out and about running errands. We usually hit up the drive-through and bring home something warm and satisfying to eat together before Ada goes down for her afternoon nap. It's an activity we've gladly fit into our weekend routine over the years.

I always, always, always get the same thing: A cup of Creamy Tomato Soup (with those delicious croutons!), a Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich (with American cheese, which is a guilty pleasure of mine, on Sourdough bread), and an apple.

Here's my meal with something sweet on the side:

I suppose I love this meal so much because it speaks to my inner-child, who used to love playing outdoors in the snow, only to be called inside for a tasty lunch very much like this one. Lots of dipping and dripping and good memories there.

The chocolate cupcake is a new favorite of mine.

I mean, who doesn't love chocolate on chocolate?

Stephen's favorite, on the other hand, is much different from mine. He opts for the Mediterranean Veggie sandwich, piled high with everything they can stack between two slices of bread. The last time we went, he also got this amazingly hearty side salad and some of that delicious mac and cheese!

Anyway, Panera has a ton of new things on the menu these days, but they are currently celebrating those meals that their customers -- like me -- have loved over the years.

So, I'd love to know: What's YOUR favorite?
