Hi Carmella,
My husband and have always gone out for dinner on weekends, and during my recovery we continued.  I was a very cheap son thought I ate as if I were anorexic.  I'd eat a half portion and only manage to nibble down a quarter of it.  A bowl of soup would become three meals when I brought the leftovers home. 
Use your imagination.  Anything that can be chewed to a liquid is fair game. Take small bites, and chew, chew, chew.  If it doesn't chew to a creamy, smooth consistency, don't swallow it.
