Panera Bread



Here are a few pictures that I took yesterday at Panera. The first one is of the bakery area right after lunch. The bread area off to the left appears to need some attention in restocking. The second picture is the lull after the storm. Everyone is cleaning and restocking after the lunch rush. The line on the right is where sandwiches are made, soups dished up and everything is consolidated. On the left the paninis are made and grilled, and the salads are made. The last picture is of the ovens. The one on the left is a huge oven that holds large racks that are frequently filled with bagels during the day and several kinds of pastries and more bagels all night. The other side is a deck oven with 4 separate ovens. During the day these are used for baking baguettes, but at night they bake the bread.

You'd be surprised(maybe)at the number of people in Manawa that know about Panera. I let them know that Panera picked winner! Love ya!

Yum. Makes me hungry for a warm cinnamon crunch bagel and a caramel latte!

That makes me miss Panera. We went there a lot when we lived in Jefferson City. Sadly, they don't have it down here in Louisiana.
