Wisdom Teeth Cuisine – Part 2


Because nothing says “Christmas” like sprinkles on your applesauce…

Both daughters have now had their wisdom teeth out. Both have requested variety in meals before they are able to chew. (It makes sense… you might THINK you can live on milkshakes… but they do get to be tiresome.) So here’s the variety of foods we’ve found so far. It’s still not a very wide choice of options, but it’s a start.

I’d like to note that some of these options they would not touch (i.e. the beans and/or squash concoctions) but I think that it would appeal to me… 🙂 If you want recipes for the smoothies please see my first post here…

COLD:

  • applesauce – change it up by adding cinnamon, sprinkles, brown sugar
  • yogurt – smooth only – no chunky fruit
  • pudding – they went for chocolate and butterscotch… I happen to love tapioca and rice puddings!
  • fruit smoothies – made with just ice, with fruit juice, or with yogurt/ice cream
  • You’ll note a strong disinterest for jello in our family. 🙂

WARM:

  • mashed potatoes
  • warmed applesauce
  • pureed soups like red pepper tomato, cream of chicken, cream of broccoli, squash
  • egg drop soup
  • refried beans – these appealed to me, but my daughters both shuddered!

BEVERAGES:

  • herb teas
  • warmed cider
  • ginger ale
  • apple juice
  • almond milk (chocolate)
  • hot chocolate
  • frappucinos (for the mama)

 

FIRST “REAL” FOODS:

  • Chicken and dumplings
  • Home-made soups of any kind
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Baked beans
  • Tortellini or ravioli
  • Pastas in a mild sauce (i.e. no spicy meatballs!)
  • Meatloaf (not MY choice…)

 

Hope you find something that tempts the palate and eases a sore mouth! 🙂
