If you have a food processor, just about anything can be a pureed food. Try it with some leftovers before the big day to get an idea. Roast chicken, rice pilaf and steamed asparagus - toss it all in the FP and take it for a ride.

Chili, beef (or lamb or chicken) stew and soups (not just cream soups) are all good candidates for the FP.

I hope the pain part goes away very quickly for you sprout.

I always make whatever meal I want, then put it into the food processor until its thin enough to just swallow without chewing. If it's a meal like; Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green-beans and cobbler, I put the meatloaf and taters into one batch, then the green beans into another and the cobbler into one by itself.

I get the ABC (already been chewed) food in the same exact flavors I would have, but no chewing! Kinda like adult baby food.

My best wishes for fast healing and low pain. Get well soon!

Sorry Sprout! I had all 4 pulled at once too several years back, and I bought out the store shelves of Jello... only to find that I wasn't much into Jello. Ice cream kept me sustained for a while, and I can go through a jar of Nutella like nobody's business.
How bout a creamy mushroom soup? Smoothies, hot chocolate (add in cayenne and cinnamon for more antioxidants), polenta, savory bread pudding baked more as a custard and if all else fails, chicken broth is good for the soul! :)

Thanks for the well-wishes and suggestions! Lots of great ideas.

Pacanis, the little one in my avatar is 2 now. It's an old picture. I believe when that pic was taken she was already chewing pretty well, too. She got her chompers pretty early.

Andy & Timothy, I don't have a food processor, but I have a blender. Will that work, too?

Taxlady, I'm not sure I can trust my eggs; they have shifty eyes...

It's harder to puree solids in a blender. You can do it but often have to add liquid to get the blender to do the job.

I don't know if I could handle most of these suggestions. You must have a strong stomach for some of these.

gently cook some farina--with milk (any %) is the tastiest and most filling, but w/water is very good too. brown 1-2 tablespoons of butter to a rich, deep brown color, pour into your serving bowl over the hot farina. for a sweet farina (and a wonderful taste treat) bury wells of brown sugar in the farina in several places with a teaspoon--and/or your favorite fruit or berry preserves. mmmm--this delicious and quick comfort food needs no excuse, (like a sore mouth) to show up at your table, but would be a kind and soothing choice in such an instance....:)
