Weird request- soft foods and juice/smoothies
2023.06.04 07:21 weebonnielass1 Weird request- soft foods and juice/smoothies
Hello all, I have a weird request for you mile high foodies. I was recently in an accident that has me wiring my jaw shut for 6 weeks and I'll be on a pretty much liquid/puree diet and I know over time it'll get rough. To treat myself on the occasion I wanna go out and find foods that are more than my homemade tumeric carrot juice. Anything goes, super amazing puree sides dishes, juice bars, best restaurant recommendations for mashed potatoes? But yeah I've got places like playa bowls for fun smoothies in mind and I recently found out I can handle extra soft soup noodles, anything sipable and slurpable goes I'm open to any and all.

2023.06.04 06:03 twisty_mcfisty Is there any way the Mississippi Pot Roast could possibly be any better?
Mississippi Pot Roast is a staple in my house. I make it at least once a month and I always make enough to have leftovers for days. It’s such a simple, incredibly flavorful recipe that needs very little alteration.
I’ve made it in the slow cooker, braised it in the over, pressure cooked it in the instant pot, and the slow cooker has to be the best method I’ve attempted.
I’ve tried adding potatoes and carrots in the pot during the last hour or two of cooking, I’ve served it next to roasted veggies, sometimes I’ll buy stuff to make sandwiches with the leftovers, but my favorite is serving it over a bed of mashed potatoes with a reduction sauce made from the cooking liquid.
After playing around with the recipe, when I make it now I opt for the reduced sodium brown gravy mix instead of the au jus so it isn’t as overwhelmingly salty (it’s still plenty salty), and I add 10-15 peperoncini with a splash of the liquid on top of the meat before I top it with the butter and packet mixes. During the last hour of cooking, I’ll remove about half of the cooking liquid, skim the fat off the top, and reduce it down until it coats the back of a spoon.
I’m making Mississippi Pot Roast for a family dinner tomorrow and I’m curious to see if anyone has changed the recipe in such a way that they’ll never make it any other way now.

2023.06.04 06:01 BoobsOnAlert Soft Food Diet help!!
After getting my wisdom teeth removed, I was told I’d need to be on a soft food diet for 6-8 weeks after. First, I don’t even really know what this means. Second, I cannot keep living off of soup and mashed potatoes. I need some help figuring out how to make meals that will sustain me through my very physical job and also be soft enough for me to eat.
Thank you in advance. This is a huge stressor for me since I love food :(

2023.06.04 04:35 RoswalienMath Oops…too many meals?
Kiddo turned 6 months old on the first. Last week I gave him 1 food to try during 1 meal each day as a warm up. Monday: A few blackberries in a silicone feeder, Tuesday: a single wedge of avocado with grip seeds, Wednesday: a few tablespoons of steamed sweet potato in the silicone feeder…you get the idea. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and ate most of what he was given.
For the past 3 days he’s had 3 meals (1-2 tbl of 3 foods) plus normal breastfeeding. I just read in a BLW book that it’s supposed to be 1 meal, gradually increasing to 2-3 meals by 9 months. Oops.
He’s been self-feeding most of the meals from preloaded spoons (2 tbl each of 2 foods per meal: mashed sweet potato, mashed white potato, mashed pinto beans) and getting 80% of it in his tummy and one handheld food item (2 wedges of avocado with seeds, 2 sticks steamed veggie, banana) which he doesn’t eat much of (but he tries). He’s also had pb toast with mashed blackberries as “jelly” as a solo meal and baby iron oatmeal with almond butter and mashed banana mixed in as a solo meal - both self-fed.
He usually breastfeeds for about 2 hours per day (~1 hr per side). That hasn’t changed this week.
Is the recommendation of 1 meal because infants get frustrated? For their digestion? Because it might offset breastmilk/formula? To keep them from gaining weight too rapidly?
Not sure what to do here because he is self-feeding successfully and doesn’t get frustrated. He’s also having bowel movements 1-2 times per day, but he has been making straining noises more often (with no result).
I’m going to drop him down to 1 until I see his pediatrician on the 6th and see what she says, but I’m curious what y’all think. (FYI: This pediatrician told us we could start feeding at 4 months, but we waited).

2023.06.04 03:08 Commercial-Fox-3665 Do I move on? If so how?
In advance I'm sorry for the long post, I just want to provide as much information as possible.
I recently left an unhealthy relationship. And moved back home for a "new start". After leaving said relationship, I made a commitment to be single for an extended period of time so I could work on myself and do some healing. Shortly after I moved home I met a guy, I'll call him T for privacy. T and I clicked from the start. He's the only guy I've ever been with who hasn't made me feel like a sexual object or was using me to gain something.He made me feel like I'm worth being treated with respect, worth being wanted. He treated me how I've spent my entire life wanting to be treated. T showed me what it was like to be with a man who responded me. We had a lot of deep talks about where we were in life and our past and what we wanted our individual futures to look like. T would ask me over regularly, 4+ times a week and occasionally before he had work. As things progressed we wound up deciding to cut sex out of our dynamic as even though we both knew we should be singing, emotions were developing.
Here's this issue:
About two months ago, T invited me over before he has work so we could do a small traid. I gave him some bud and in exchange he gave me some micro-dose chocolate. We were supposed to make the trade the day prior, but when we meet up I thought I forgot my stash jar. I was in a weird mental state and panicked. I felt like I dropped the ball and was simply bugging him at that point. And talked myself into thinking there would be no reason he'd want to just sit and hangout / talk
Well the next day T looked in his car because I couldn't find my stash jar, and of course my jar had simply fallen out of the car. So I went over to make the trade / smoke before T had work.
We talked about it and T asked how I'd been doing because he could tell I wasn't okay. I explained to him that he and I don't normally have interactions that feel transactional and that one did / was and I had an anxiety attack. We also briefly talked about how in past situations, not involving T, I've felt used.
T changed the topic, trying to pick up my mood. and told me he'd only eaten instant mashed potatoes for 3, almost 4, days, so the last time he actually ate was when he invited me over for dinner. We were high, and I had an intrusive thought to throw my elf bar at him, not hard enough to hit him. But told myself I shouldn't do that. T continued to talk, I can't remember about what I think it was about his eating, and I closed my eyes trying to breath. Telling myself not to, it wasn't necessary. And when I opened my eyes, I had beemed my vape at him. And I wound up hitting his temple I think, and broke skin. I feel like a peice of shit for this I wound up leaving shortly after. And on my way home, my stomach dropped and I knew I'd never hear from him again. T occasionally texted me, about the situation, and would up telling me he feels differently now. We wound up splitting ways and T told me he didn't think we'd talk for a while, if ever again. Understandably so, his best friend / roomate doesn't like me now.
A little over a week ago now, T texted me asking me to come over and smoke. My heart jumped, and at first I thought he had to of meant to text someone else. But I imagine he'd deleted our text or if he kept them it would have been under other, more recent text. So I responded and went over. We talked and cought up. I've missed him so much, so simply being around him felt like a gift. After what I did, it was. As we talked all of my emotions started to resurface. I'd missed his smile and voice so much. I'd missed how when he kisses me it felt like he was hungry for more, and couldn't get enough. We did wind up having sex. And later it came out that his best friend still didn't want me around. And when T had mentioned texting me, his friend said he shouldn't. His roomate also didn't know i was over.
This was upsetting for me. I miss T so much, and with the changing of seasons there's so much I wish I could involve him in.
But I don't want to be a source of tension between them. They've been best friends practically forever. But I can't get T out of my head. I texted him the next day explaining that I miss him and want to be around him, but don't want to cause that drama. He expressed understanding and apologized for not thinking before asking me over. And wished me the best. I told him that if it was the last time we spent time together, I'd take it over what it was previously.
I left it open so he knows it's an option, I don't want to close that door. I miss him more now that I did when we stopped talking. I didn't expect to hear from him again, ever. I kept his number out of hope he'd forgive me. Knowing he had been think about reaching out. Knowing some part of him wanted to see me again.
I don't want anyone else. I want to make things right with T. But a part of me tells myself to let him go, and fully move on. I don't want to cause more drama for him or stress. His work puts him under a lot of stress as is, T doesn't deserve that. I want to call him and pour my heart out, but im terrified it's the wrong thing to do.

2023.06.04 01:55 S_Hearts12 I know most of ya hate slaw, but I work at a restaurant in the so cal area and we make 2 of these bad boys a day (4 small containers, sometimes more). Customers can choose to have 1 of our 15 side dishes. They overwhelmingly choose slaw…
| || |
Disclaimer! “Technically” customers order fries more. However if they were to choose something other than fries then slaw becomes the top pick. So 1/11 sides if u want to ignore the fries. submitted by S_Hearts12 to PaymoneyWubby [link] [comments]
Our sides are: slaw, macaroni salad, potato salad, fruit (always fresh), steak fries, curly fries, onion rings, chips (putting garlic butter on the chips are banger imo), bbq beans, chili, soup of the day (loaded potato, clam chowder, chicken tortilla (my fav), & minestrone), rice, veggies, mashed potatoes (w/gravy), loaded mashed potatoes (topped with cheese, sour cream, & butter), corn on the cob, and Mac n cheese (the good kind).
Just thought I’d put that info out there after seeing the poll. I figured it would be popular based off my personal experience of having hundreds of customers order slaw. But I suppose not, lol.
2023.06.04 01:51 draven616 New to cooking, would very much appreciate cheap and/or easy recipes, preferably ones that aren’t too time consuming (disabled w/ back pain) thanks :)

2023.06.04 01:47 ChronicallyTaino I'm so done.
Working in a hospital, especially food service, isn't for the sensitive. I've been yelled at, scolded, had half my paycheck taken away, and not to mention the staff treat us like shit. I got yelled at about mashed potatoes and soup today. I asked if they'd like me to take it back, and they said no? I don't know, it just feels like the last straw. Is this even worth it at this point? To be fair the only thing holding me back is working with my partner, and I love them.

2023.06.04 00:01 keefer2023 Meals for the Homeless under $2.50 each
I prepare meals delivered to a homeless Respite open on Mondays (16-24 meals per week). The Respite has a microwave so I generally take frozen meals in individual serving containers. And I can save some for myself for use in ensuing days or weeks.
My rules are that the meal should be:
- Balanced with respect to calories, fiber, fat, cholesterol, sodium and protein and provide 60% RDA.
- Cost to me of no more than $2.50 per meal in Sacramento CA, including containers and utensils.
- Be palatable to the average homeless person who is used to American fare. Curry dishes are probably too exotic and things like lentils are considered weird.
- I shop specials and freeze in advance. The quality must be acceptable to me! I eat the same meals.
Standard ingredients are:
- Ground turkey 93/7, chicken thighs, pork loin, Bristol canned ham, chunk light tuna, boneless ham on special. Maybe beef for stewing if on special (< $4 per pound).
- Eggs, egg whites, brick cheese, almond (or soy) milk, butter, margarine
- Potatoes, onions, garlic, rice and pasta (egg noodles, rotini, penne, etc.). Spaghetti is not easy to eat if you are sitting on the ground with the bowl in your lap.
- Frozen vegetables: peas and carrots, onions and peppers, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, etc.
- Rice and pastas, flour, sugar, raisins, salt, mustard, ketchup
- Canned tomatoes and tomato sauces, tomato paste, canned potatoes, chicken broth (low sodium)
- Spices and Herbs: minced onion, garlic powder, pepper, paprika, ginger, parsley, oregano, bay leaves, cumin, cinnamon, thyme, sage, basil
It can be done (some meals need sides, some are complete):
- Ground turkey meatloaf, cranberry sauce, green beans
- Chicken Thigh Cacciatore over rotini broccoli side
- Ham slices with raisin sauce, sweet potato puree, broccoli side
- Tuna casserole with peas and carrots (complete meal)
- American Beef stew (complete meal)
- Pork Bourguignon (complete meal)
- Shepherd's (Cottage) pie with ground beef or ground turkey (contains peas, carrots, onions, celery)

2023.06.03 22:25 aksonder Help with reception menu and accommodating guests
Our RSVPs are in and I have sent the count to my caterer, along with dietary restrictions and allergies.
Out of 57 total, I have one vegan and one vegetarian. My caterer responded that they cannot alter the menu to accommodate specific personal choices. Something I should have inquired about before, I guess. She feels like there is enough food, but I did want to get opinions from folks who are vegan or vegetarian.
I will just list everything we are providing. We will have cocktail hour with hors d’œuvres: BBQ reindeer sausage, spinach dip with crostini, fresh tomato basil bruschetta, Swedish style meatballs, fruit tray, and a meat and cheese platter.
Our dinner is buffet style and we have: prime rib, salmon, garlic mashed potatoes, wild rice pilaf, zesty cucumber salad, and cesar salad.
My feeling is that this isn’t really enough for the the two people - there are several options but there’s no protein, for example. So I’m wondering if I should prepare a vegan entree separately for them (we are hosting the wedding at a lodge and it has a nice kitchen where we could do that) and if anyone has ideas on what type of entree would be good?

2023.06.03 20:58 gstout_717 Overfilled Blueberry into Airlock?
| || |
I just started a Blueberry brew yesterday. Added an estimated 1lb of blueberries and filled it with minimal space because I wanted the most out of the brew. submitted by gstout_717 to mead [link] [comments]
I found it today with the mead in the airlock. I pulled the lid off and the blueberries were to the brim. I assume the pressure under the berries was too much and I didn’t leave enough space.
I scooped the blueberries that were just above the curved neck to the opening of my gallon jar out and carefully mixed everything back together.
Did I add too many blueberries or too much water? What are some tips for using fruit while fermenting and leaving enough space?
Any tips will help thanks.
2023.06.03 20:11 timeofthemoose13 Am I the ass hole
I keep having the same argument with my boss over measurement oz vs fluid oz.
They insist that a gallon no matter on what's in it will always be 8lbs, i.e a gallon of mashed potatoes vs a gallon of water.
I keep trying to explain that a fluid oz is a measurement of volume were a oz is a measurement of mass so you can't just weight it and call it good. Catering is a huge part of our restaurant and I hate wasting product by giving to much to people.
Is it me did I learn this wrong?

2023.06.03 19:37 lizardl0ver43 worried about food sensory issues in wisdom tooth surgery recovery—advice?
i’m getting wisdom tooth surgery this summer, and i am already panicking about what i’m going to be able to eat while recovering even though it’s months out. i have sensory issues with any mushy of creamy textures. the only soups i can tolerate are brothy soups with lots of firm textures in them (pasta, carrots, chicken.) i have never been able to eat mashed potatoes, creamy soups, applesauce, smoothies, yogurt, etc… basically, the entire standard list of recovery foods are things i have issue with, besides ice cream lol. obviously i want to be able to get adequate nutrition when i’m recovering and being able to identify even a few safe foods in the next few months before my surgery is the goal. i’m not necessarily seeking advice on particular foods i might tolerate as that’s obviously super individual, but what i’m curious about is—what advice do y’all have for overcoming these kinds of texture issues with foods? anyone been through anything similar and have ideas for increasing my tolerance to soft foods? my mom doesn’t understand why i have so much anxiety about this aspect of the surgery, but i feel like i need some sort of systematic approach to prepare myself. i can’t imagine just forcing myself to eat a bunch of soft foods for the first time ever WHILE in recovery.
