Just because it's summer doesn't mean I don't love soup. The Autumn Squash soup is a tasty blend of pumpkin and butternut squash with a little bit of ginger and apple. It's thick with chunks of squash throughout. I love having it with my salad. And no laptop lunch is complete without a cup of coffee. The Panera Organic French Roast blend is the perfect pick me up.
