Greetings Everyone!
It is almost time for my oral surgery. I need some help. Ive got to make alot of batches of soup and sadly I only know a handful of recipes. So, if you all wouldnt mind. Please post your soup & bread recipes. Anything that would be easy to freeze / stores well / can eat with no toofs or can be put in blender.
 Thanks so much!

Basic Chicken Noodle Soup.

In a pot boil 2 boneless chicken breast in a 50/50 mix of chicken broth and water. (Do not discard "water" once chicken is cooked)

When chicken is completely cooked dice it and return to pot and bring to boil.

Add 1 stick of margarine and spaghetti noodles broken into 1/4 length segments.

Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook until noodles are very tender.

(You can add some canned diced carrots for some veggies in this soup)

Potato Soup:

In a large sauce pan add enough diced russet potatoes to fill pan 2/3-3/4 of the way. Add 1/2 of a diced yellow or white onion and fill pan with water. Add a few dashes of salt and bring to boil cooking potatoes until very tender.

Do not drain water.

Add 1 stick of margarine and fill pan with milk, Heat until almost boiling stirring occasionally.

Not a soup but soft and yummy:

BBQ baked beans

In a cassarole dish mix

2 large or 4 small cans of pork and beans
Honey bbq sauce (approx 1/3 of a smaller "standard bottle")
1/2 cup brown sugar

Cover and bake for 4-6 hours in a 300 degree oven until majority of liquid has been cooked out.

If you like the Pasta e Fagioli Soup at Olive Garden, here's a good facsimile:

2 lbs. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 (28 oz.) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (16 oz.) can red kidney beans, drained
1 (16 oz.) can white kidney beans, drained
3 (10 oz.) cans beef broth
3 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. pepper
5 tsp. parsley
1 tsp. Tabasco
1 (20 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce

Brown beef in skillet
Drain fat from beef and add to pot with remaining ingredients
Cook 2-3 hours (7-8 on low in crockpot)

3 carrots, shredded
8 oz. pasta

Add carrots and pasta
Cook an additional 30 minutes (60 in crock pot)

Jim ruined my theory that us guys know no more than how get a loaf of bread from wal mart and to pry open a can of campbells. What I am trying to say is, I am better suited to be a friend than a chef :) Looks like there are some good recipes here to get you going. How long before your husband can throw a steak on the grill for you?

I can't help you on the recipe front, as I do the canned thing myself. Never have been good at making homemade soups, but then I've never tried much!

Another options might be smoothies of some sort - throwing some healthy things in a blender but not making them too cold. I've been drinking a lot of that type of thing, although I confess I buy some premade things at the store! I'm still eating on one side of my mouth. Maybe I always will be!

Anyway, good luck to you!!!!

Fruit salad Dani!!
Buy what ever fruits are on sale in season at your local fruit stand, cut them up and run them through a blender, mix w/ cold serbet or icecream! Drink cold!!! I don't do soup in summer, I'll have to try to remember some I cook in winter!
Good luck Little Sis,
We'll all be thinking about you!

Hey Chart
  Alas, a calcium absorption rate of 0.002 has left me with nothing. So I am having permanently anchored dental implant bridges.  
"....Because the dental implants are anchored in the jawbone, they stimulate the bone tissue and help to maintain healthy 
bone levels and facial structures....."
I am only 29. So, need to have long term solutions. I hope it works. cry
