Asparagus Baked Omelette with Potato

During a recent shopping trip, which I actually took a picture of but won’t post because I set a rule for myself and it’s not Friday, I created a list before hand that included the produce I like that was on sale.  On that list was the asparagus you see here.  Beautiful, green, delicious asparagus.

Does anyone else find asparagus fascinating?

Also on that list was white potatoes and yellow onions both of which made it into this omelette. Eric and I had this for dinner, then I had it again the next day on a salad.  It’s such a great way to get your protein and veggies all in one place.  Enjoy!

**There is really no nice way to ask this so I will just come right out and ask it, does your pee smell funny after you eat asparagus?  If, like me (I know, too much info), it does you are one of the 22% of people who can smell it.  I thought EVERYONE could smell it, but it turns out not everyone can – which explains the strange looks I’ve gotten over the years (well maybe not all the strange looks).  Check out this post in Discovery to find out more about it.

How about you?  Are you part of the lucky 22%
