This yummy omelet is our go-to porch brunch almost every weekend.  Warm or cold weather, James and I like to have a meal on the porch. Brunch is the best time to sit, eat, and listen to the birds. I love to try different combinations vegetables, and for the sides, I always try an assortment of fruit.I’ve never had a disappointment yet.  Our favorite is the spinach, tomato, and pepper garden omelet with blood oranges and strawberries.  And it was what we had today.  Here is how I prepare it:

I start with the best eggs, free-range and usually hatched by chickens I know. HeeHee!  Okay, not really.  But, I am really picky with what I eat so I do make sure to buy quality, and if possible, I buy from local farmers.  Also, I don’t really use this many in my omelet…it just looked better in the pictures.

Put it all together and this is what you get: Yum, Yum, Yum.
