I survived on scrambled eggs cooked with goat cheese so they were more runny. For a while I tolerated apple sauce, mashed potatoes with no salt or pepper.

The truth it, what I could eat changed almost daily and so we just kept a bunch of stuff on hand.

Best wishes.

My friend came over last night and made me a shake containing one avocado, one can sweetened condensed milk, half a cup of vanilla ice-cream and a little regular milk. it had a really mild flavor, was easy to drink and had lost of calories and protein. Those amounts made an entire pitcher so I've been drinking it all day. Made a nice change from the canned supplements.

I found yet another thing that Ron is getting down quite well and is exclaiming how good it is every time he eats it AND he has eaten the whole large crockpot that I made, I took to lunch 1 time this week the rest he has eaten and I froze a container for later in the winter.
Stuffed Pepper Soup! He puts it over 2 pcs of BUTTERED white bread with crust removed and he sucks that right down! Wahoo!
he told me "make sure you eat it with bread" when I took some for lunch.

I am 4.5 years out now. Learning which foods I can no longer eat was easy....like POPCORN, for example. Learning the new mechanics of how to eat the foods I can has taken some time, but now I'm almost a "pro" at it. I'm into trying things again that I could not eat a year ago and thinking up simple new recipes that are quick and nourishing since I am on the go a lot. I just wanted to share a delicious little recipe for a hot breakfast that I concocted this week. If you like oatmeal, bananas and raisins then you should LOVE this! Bananas are not a problem but I cannot eat raisins by themselves for risk of getting them hung up in my throat. However, I was determined to find a way to eat them and still enjoy them! I open one packet of instant brown sugar and maple oatmeal into a bowl then add water just to the top of the oatmeal. That much water is usually sufficient so the oatmeal won't be too thick, but you can add a little more after it is cooked if you like the oatmeal thinner. (You can use plain oatmeal or any other flavor you like) Microwave on high for 40 secs. Slice up a whole banana and add to the cooked oatmeal then sprinkle with a handful of yogurt raisins or plain raisins, whichever you prefer. DELICIOUS, and very filling! Good for you too! Enjoy! Happy New Year to everyone!

That is delicious! I like the Instant Peach Oatmeal, cut up dried prunes and add handful of cranraisins. Add just a little more water or milk than recommended on package. I like it with bananas, too. Serve with a little 1/2 and 1/2 after it's cooked.

BTW - Did you know that the Gourmet Jelly Beans (Jelly Bellies?) make a popcorn flavored jelly bean? For anyone having to be off the popcorn but still craving the taste.

If Im very careful, I can break up pieces of popcorn and manage to get a few pieces down. I used to LOVE jelly beans, how I wish I could eat those among other things.

Went out to a restaurant in a nearby town called Mon Ami yesterday afternoon. Had a wonderful bowl of lobster bisque with a puff pastry crust, and creme brulee for dessert. I almost didn't even miss having a glass of wine. Always order creme brulee if it is available or flan when I am at a Mexican restaurant.

With over 2 years post tx, multiple dialations without improvement I've grown strangely fond of what I call the "picnic side dish" diet: baked beans, macaroni salad, and cole slaw. The slaw can be a bit catchy so I mix all three together in the bowl.

Saurkraut is another that Ron is able to get down with some mashed potatoes and mixes that all up with some juice from say pork roast or kelibasa! And the prime rib I made New Years day I took the fat and some really soft meat and cut that up for him very fine and he was able to get that down too and enjoy it!
