I am so glad you mentioned tiramisu. It is one of my husband's favorites, and I did not think of it. I am going shopping!
Thanks,


Diane

Hey everyone.my newfound favorite food is sour cream!I wasn't a big fan of it before all this happened,but it's honestly made me enjoy my food alot more since I tried it recently.you can mix it with almost anything,and it's been delicious..you just get enough taste out of it.it's good with pastas,lasagna,etc.but I add it to almost everything I eat now.it makes swallowing easier too.just an idea..so if you're capable of eating it,it's definitely worth a shot.my fridge is now full of them smile

going to bump this one up hoping it helps someone. the foods listed are great and we tried most of them. with limited to no taste buds, flavor wasnt really an issue.

his bigger thing is mental, my dad antcipates texture, chewing, how the food will "grow" in his mouth, leaving our best cullinary attempts untouched. carnation vhc only, and only vanilla works. we force him to drink one of those a day mixed with unflavored wey and vanilla icecream, and believe me, he still looks like a chipmunk storing nuts. he does make it work though as it is this or a peg, and he would not hear of a peg.

Ron always eats spoonfuls of Helluva Good onion chip dip! He also eats lots of small curd cottage cheese. The other day he got down for the first time Sourkraut and a little bit of Hillshire Farm smoked Keilbasa he cut up real small. He also always eats those little Michelena frozen meals in those little boxes or smart ones cuz he likes certain ones. He eats canned asparagus but has to watch out for the harder pcs and spinich he can get down too. He's sucked down fat from my brisket I made on the grill too! Also Bob Evans sausage biscuit and gravy and Stouffer's chip beef on toast he can suck down. So he's doing pretty good I'd say. Still skinny though but looking a "healthier" skinny.

I puree Chunky soup and he eats that with mashed potatoes(with butter and milk). I also make gravy (or use canned) mix it with chopped up meat(beef or chicken usually) poured over potatoes.He eats lots of ice cream, Carnation, Boost. He recently discovered cake soaked in milk or cake mashed up in ice cream. I will make him anything he is willing to try because he has always been a picky eater.


Wife, he was diagnosed early 8/11, SCC-floor of mouth. Surgery 9/6/11, removal of cancer, part of tongue, salivary gland and lymphnodes, skin and vessels from arm to reconstruct, graft from leg to repair arm. T3N0. Radiation to start 10/11.
