I'm about to undergo major dental surgery (all the remaining ones are coming out, as a matter of fact), and it will be some time before the dentures go in. Obviously it will be awhile before I can chomp on a steak. And the first couple of days, I'm sure, will be puddings and such. But what about once the gums start to heal? What I'm looking for are soft foods that taste good. Things that I can eat without haveing to masticate them first. Mashes and purees come to mind, of course. But I need suggestions for other things, if nothing else for variety sake. In a word: Help!
