So the title for this post isn't much - but right now that is the most beautiful word I have seen in a while. I am still struggling through this liquid phase of my surgery recovery, but I ventured out to the grocery store with John tonight only to find something new that might have saved this week for me... baked potato soup. I know it's nothing big, but for someone has only eaten bland protein shakes and cream of chicken soup for days... baked potato soup might be a pot of gold to me tonight. HA! I bought it at this fabulous HEB/Central Market store that just opened a few weeks ago - which let me tell you as I rediscover food - you might hear about some other treasures that I find there in the coming weeks.

I brought the soup home and put it through the blender... and it was the best thing I've ever tasted! Finally, a little flavor for my life! I could probably go on for days about how good that tasted, but I'll spare you guys.

I also bought a few other new things to try this week, I got some Weight Watchers Yogurt (it didn't seem to have any chunks), and some baby food apple sauce. A friend of mine also told me that baby food mac & cheese wasn't half bad - so I got a jar of that to try as well.

At the end of this week I will get to broaden my food choices, and try some more new things - I'll move into the pureed or soft solid food stage - so any ideas from you readers out there would be welcomed. I can eat just about anything that is at least slightly mushy. I'm trying to keep my sugars down though - so I'm only dabbling in fruit right now... we'll see how it goes and take it from there.

I do have a request though from my lovely devoted readers... I have grown up as a land-dweller, and have NEVER liked seafood. The first solid protein that I can try starting this weekend though is fish... and I need some recipes for white fish... I'm looking for things that will be tasty, but that your kids would eat. I am really opposed to fish, but am giving it a try - so this is tough for me... and it REALLY can't smell like fish. Any ideas? Email them to me or post comments...

  1. Yo baby yogurt is really good and no chunks and organic... Also, avocado mixed with bananna in the blender is yummy, but might be too sugary!!


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
