One of my FAVORITE lunches this time of year is the Butternut Squash Soup from Panera. It’s one of their seasonal soups and I look forward to it every fall. It’s so tasty and I love nothing better than sipping it to warm up on a brisk fall day.

I’m all over this Copycat recipe that attempts to make the same soup recipe at home. YUM.
