Denver Deal: Denver Zoo, Legos, Family Nights and more
I try to be healthy – but like most moms I succumb to the time crunch. I would love to create these amazing and healthy dinners for my kids every night. But honestly, I’m getting pretty adept at making convenience foods look like my own creation. That is why I’m so happy that I’ve discovered Panera Bread. They have brought back some of my favorites (French Onion Soup, Mediterranean Salmon Salad, Salmon Club, Salmon Caesar Salad!) and created new Spinach Power Salad. But when I want to pass it off as my own it’s handy Sourdough Bread Bowl Soup Bundle featuring a quart of cafe soup and 4 sourdough bread bowls is perfect!
