Fifth lunch set for a number of days

This set had two new dishes.

The first dish was orzo, roasted asparagus, and dates. It was easy to make. The hardest part was cutting up the small, sticky dates. It turned out alright. Not too sweet.

The second dish was taken from zucchini pasta with creamy avocado cucumber sauce. I used the mandolin to thinly slice zucchini. And then I used a knife to slice into spaghetti stick shapes. The avocado cucumber sauce was easy to make and something I had not thought of as going together before. My horizons have broadened a little more. And I would make it again.

The third dish was a repeat with collard greens, mustard greens, and bacon with some pectin added to gel up the chicken stock sauce. I didn’t slice the greens small enough. But that turned out to be a minor problem.
