Soup Kitchen

So, the wisdom teeth saga continues. It's been 5 days since the oral surgery and I'm nowhere near the point of solid food yet. I do have a lovely pollen-yellow bruise across my face though!

After an impromptu trip back to the oral surgeon for more pain meds today (where he poked and prodded until I was swollen all over again), I've begun to think that my life is going to revolve around pureed soups for quite some time.

My mom has been wonderful this past week and keeps sending me home with smooshy versions of my favorites from home, but I'm admittedly burning out on Potato Cheese (I know, gasp!).

So, today I did a little experimenting in the kitchen. Of it came nothing great, a little good and a lot of bad!

The "Kind of Good" List

Creamy Rosemary Potato Soup
Broccoli Cheese Soup
Potato & Yellow Squash Soup
Peppery Butternut Squash Soup
Apple Peanut Butter Soup


The "Oh, So Bad" List

Creamy Asparagus Pea Soup
Cucumber Avocado Potato Soup
Cold Melon Soup

  2. Oh Sweetheart...I am so sorry you are having such a horrid time. I hope you get better soon.

    I was so excited to see these recipes since I will be having some surgery sometime in the next month and a half and will have to eat pureed food and soup for about 2-3 after that. That apple peanut butter soup looks soooooooo good!

    Get well!!
