I blended things into puree like vegetable beef soup, and such.. I didn't try any "real" meat in the blender, my first 'meat' was chicken vienna sausages.. not bad when you are starved for meat. They really don't taste bad when you have nothing else to eat and they will chew to liquid. Full liquid is deceiving, I ate things like cottage cheese, yogurt, well cooked fresh veggies (nothing cooked crisp/fresh like steamed) they have to be almost over cooked.
I wouldn't try real meat until you are ok to eat soft solids. then I started with baked or broiled fish (it chews to a liquid) and the vienna sausages, soft veggies cooked, over cooked pasta, I started with an Alfredo sauce instead of spaghetti sauce, less acid, things like that. The best thing I can tell you about diet is... listen to your body, it will let you know if it likes or dislikes what you are feeding it or doing to it.
I hope this helps a little, please ask all the questions you like, I will be here and so will many of our other forum family members to help you make your way through this recovery..
