This Week's Eats 5.5.13 (and Eugene Eats)

I finally had an Original Yumm Bowl and, lo, it was deeeelicious!

However, now that I've had the real deal, I'm pretty confident that my homemade version is pretty darn close.  The best thing I ate in Eugene, hands down, was the Liege waffle from Off The Waffle.  Oh my...

It doesn't look all that exciting, but it's the most delicious waffle I've ever had in my life.  I'm, of course, scouring the internet now on how to make these at home.  It tasted like a cross between a doughnut and a waffle.  I need to go back and try one of the many tempting offerings because I stayed with a 'safe' option of just a plain waffle with fruit and yogurt (it was the day before the race). 

I also hit up Dutch Bros at least three times, and it definitely lived up to the hype - the mochas taste as if there's a bit of chocolate malt, or some such secret ingredient, in them...

And last, but not least, I did eat a Voodoo Doughnut - so quickly I didn't even take a picture.  I got the 'Old Dirty Bastard' a raised yeast doughnut with chocolate frosting (a LOT of frosting), crushed Oreos and a drizzle of peanut butter.  OMG. 

So, last week I was MIA from menu planning because it took me until at least yesterday to feel rested.  We did lots of easy meals and nothing new or fun - time to rectify that this week!

Linking up with Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers, as well as Rachel at In No Simple Language - be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!
