Asparagus is in season, hooray! 99 cents a pound at the moment. I loooooove asparagus.

I made a stir-fry from my asian cookbook that's basically pork, tofu, and asparagus with oyster sauce & fish sauce. Way yummy.

Totally worth the stinky pee, which wikipedia tells me only 22% of the population can smell. Also, if you let it grow to the point that it can grow flowers and berries? Apparently the berries are poisonous to humans. Who knew!?

I like asparagus a lot, but i do so hate how it makes my urine smell. I'm amazed that only 15 minutes after eating some my urine stinks. Takes most of 24h to run through. Small price though.

I love asparagus but I've never noticed stinky pee so I must be part of the 78% who can't tell. But, then again, I don't sniff my pee either, so maybe it does stink.

That recipe for stir fry sounds good, but for me I'm substitute chicken for the pork.
