I love leftovers so much I could marry them.

Since I had a bunch of leftovers from my Sunday cooking marathon, my meals today were a breeze to put together.

For breakfast, I reheated a sous vide slider burger, prosciutto-wrapped mini frittata muffin, portobello mushrooms with garlic and lemon, and grilled zucchini.

After dropping Big-O off at camp, Lil-O and I went to Costco to load up on supplies. I’ve gushed about my love for Costco in the past, but it’s because I intevitably find something new and interesting on every visit. Besides the items I always purchase (e.g. avocados, cremini mushrooms, Grimaud Farms duck confit, pre-washed organic spinach, and Mauna Loa macadamia nuts), I also bought a package of individually quick frozen Wild Alaskan halibut filets and portobello mushrooms today. I also spied some Skillet Bacon Spread in the refrigerator that I’m contemplating buying on a future Costco run. It looks like a kick-ass, eff-off, occasional indulgence.

When we got home, I dunked a frozen halibut fillet straight from the bag right into the Sous Vide Supreme (set at 132 F) for 45 minutes.

Before I chowed down, I seared the halibut in hot bacon grease, seasoned it with salt and pepper, and topped the fish with homemade guacamole and cherry tomatoes.

In the afternoon, I ate a nectarine, coconut flakes, and macadamia nuts.

For dinner, I sauteed some baby spinach with minced garlic in melted bacon grease and reheated some grilled green chicken and roasted curried cauliflower in the microwave.

I love it when dinner takes only ten minutes to make!
