Today I had the pleasure of enjoying lunch at Panera Bread thanks to the wonderful Taste Master Program! Itâ€™s kind of funny because I meet at Panera with a friend every Monday and Friday morning and rarely do we ever get lunch as it is always so earlyâ€¦ I always go in for their coffee though!
I have been a fan of Panera Bread since I first starting going in college and it never fails to amaze me the fresh and healthy options they always have. Today I was torn between so many different salads and soups on the menu, but like most times I go I like to try something new so I went with the Pick 2 menu and got the Garden Vegetable with Pesto Soup and the Roasted Turkey Harvest. They both were superb! The Garden Vegetable is a lighter soup that has just the right amount of tomato flavor mixed with the wonderful rich and hearty vegetables. The Roasted Turkey Harvest salad was FALL in a bowl! Loved the mix of pecans, cranberries, pear and turkey together!
I love that they were both on the lighter side as I am trying to get back to clean eating after the HOLIDAY! I canâ€™t wait to see whatâ€™s to come on the winter menu as I am sure I will be back soon! Thanks Panera for the wonderful flavorful and healthy lunch!

I am so sorry friends I have been leaving you out on the loop about the Mission Half Marathon I just completed!!! It happened last Sunday and because the race was poorly marked I ended up getting lostâ€¦long story post to come tomorrow!
This weekend I finished decorating the house and it has now become our Christmas Cottage!!
Love these print outs from Pinterest!
This year we got a small 4ft tree for our fire side room, so we can enjoy by the nice cozy fire!

Cheers to one last night of Holiday!
Good thing I ran 25 miles over this BREAK!!

Well friends, signing off until tomorrow when I am back to work blaring the Christmas Tunes and drinking my Silk Seasonal Nog Latte while driving up the hill!
I am so excited for this Christmas season to begin, it is after all the most wonderful time of the year
Whatâ€™s something you are looking forward to this Holiday season?
