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.

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.
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.
