Hiya, me again. Well just thinking about shopping Monday and I am just not sure what'll get…Ty (my fiance if you don't know by now, lol) is getting the rest of his teeth pulled out, 11 to be exact! Ulgh, better him then me, ohhh no! Anyhow, any ideas on what he'll be able to eat … he is approved for dentures but of course that's after the swelling, fitting, etc. We know there's pudding, etc…but w/ his sugar we just dunno what to go with. *sigh* Thanks for ANY meal plans. Take care! Shella

LOL! You crack me up Becky, first you know him too well, yes he Is a MEAT and potatoe guy…mainly meat. My downfall is I don't have a blender, though I will price them and we'll see. He does love applesauce with cinninmon too! And yeah only 31 years old and dentures I know, and I thought I was bad.I told him his best bet is getting them all out though, they are a pain causing pain and w/ our insurance . medicaid - they don't work w/ you on fixng them, just yanking on choice, which I think sucks. I don't even wear my dentures, though I love the look, I HATE the feeling…l
Thank you for you thoughts btw! Sheila

From what I've read about Ty, he's a meat and potatoes guy. You can try mashed potatoes (small portions) and of course there's the soup option…but that wears out quickly. Mom faces this pretty frequently as she gets sores in her mouth. Time for new Dentures after 30 years. lol Don't laugh too hard but if you boil the meat and then run it through the blender it's not too bad. Looks awful but taste wise is ok. For the first few days you may want to stick with thin broths that he can suck through a straw. Sugar free jello and no sugar added applesauce will help if he get's a sweet tooth. Tell him I'm wishing him the best and hope that pain is not too bad. Good Luck.
