Karl’s Mandarin Orange Salad

In the continued effort to make meals for Jan that she doesn’t have to do any biting—she has two front tooth temporary caps—I suggested salmon for dinner. She thought yams were a good soft starch to go with the fish. She then suggested that this was an Orange Dinner.

Karl’s Ezo Gelin Soup II

Jan has a friend who is getting oral surgery and will have a week where she will not be able to chew. My brother-in-law and his family are also coming to the Bay Area and they all have troubles with their teeth. Soft soups are the order of the day and I decided to make three soups that I have made before: Ezo Gelin, Maafe, and Avgolemono. Half I will give to Jan’s friend as a mitzvah and we will have a soup tasting for the family with the rest.

Karl’s Shepherd’s Minced Pie

Jan is still eating soft food, but she is getting tired of smoothies. A few weeks ago, I made a Thanksgiving chopped turkey shepherd’s pie for her brother, who is also having difficulty chewing. Today, I thought I would make a lamb version for Jan.

Karl’s Turkey Rancher’s Pie II

Note: Today, I am posting a soft food shepherd’s pie and I mention in my discussion that I had made one earlier for Thanksgiving. I realized that I had never posted the recipe.

Jan’s Pomegranate Pond Scum Smoothie

Jan is still on a soft food diet so she has been making smoothies. Last night’s had kale, strawberries and banana, but she does not remember what else she put into it. It looked a bit like chocolate milk. While it tasted nice, you wanted to drink it in the dark. Today’s smoothie looked a bit nicer, but any drink with a lot of ground up kale is going to have presentation issues.
