That lasagne sounded like a great compromise of taste, appearance, yet manageability with his current restrictions. Well done! And the dessert sounds yummy, too!

Hi Ladies, thanks for the ideas! As it turrns out, he can chew a little - just as long as it's gentle, so soft food worked out good for him. Best thing we made was lasagne with blended meat-sauce so it resembled lasagne in look, still tasted like lasagne, but was REALLY soft (just the well cooked pasta sheets to "chew" through). He really appreciated being able to eat something that resembled "normal" food! lol. Stewed apples and blueberries with custard was for desert he was happy.

Chili works well, if pureed.
You might want to go to a weight loss surgery site. You are on liquids and pureed foods right after bypass and lap band surgery.
It's wonderful of you to be helping out. Sam

So sorry for you friend and I agree with Missg. My hubby always loves mashed potatoes also you can cook pinto beans on the stove and let them set after getting tender then when you reheat them for supper they are real soft and mushy also. Also just regular yogurt would be good for him. Good luck to you.

Sorry, I know that looks a little dramatic, but our best friend was in a accident a few of days ago and as a rusult of his injuries can't really chew stuff at the moment. We are going over to care for him this weekend - his wife is commited to caring for her mother at the weekends so can't be there, so of course we have offered to help out.
The problem is I am stuck for an idea for what to fix for him/us all. I am ok for desserts, but need a main-meal that's not soup or eggs and needs little to no chewing. Any ideas gratefully received!!!
