ISO Recipes for Soup
That would be In Search Of...
Oh, I need all my buddies help, here. You know, you kinda get used to this eating thing, and when you can't? Or when you keep trying then its time for more pain meds?
So, my blender is my new best friend, and I have already exhausted my repertoire for good tasting, edible stuff. I've also thrown in a batch of beans and cornbread, which blended up Very Well together, thank you. (But you don't want tooo many beans on the menu, now do you?!)
I did manage some fried eggs last night, but not well. A french fry totally depressed me yesterday. Not fun, and swallowing stuff nearly whole is going to get me, too! And yes, you CAN burn the back of your throat before you know it! Since the plate now covers the roof of my mouth, I end up with stuff too hot, and no where to put it!
I did laugh explosively this week, and forcefully ejected my uppers, which ALSO was painful. The stitches are in the process of removing themselves.
So, I need all your favorite soup recipes, please? Thank you. All the help I can get, really. I'll show you mine, if you will share yours. These are the ones from this week that folks were kind enough to share.
Thanking all my friends up front. Cause, I'm STARVING!
