    soft foods

    I'm taking care of my mom (89 advanced dementia) and of course her bottom denture broke...
    I can get it fixed next Wednesday, but in the mean time anyone have experience with tempting soft foods?
    I looked on the web and found things like this
    Warm Tofu with Spicy Garlic Soy Sesame Sauce Recipe
    It is to laugh soft recipes you know you or your old folks have enjoyed?

    Thanks, Sharyn

    How about Mashed potatoes and soft carrots with a beef gravy? Like pot roast. My mother (Alzheimer's) loved that meal. Bless you for taking care of your mom

    Homemade custards are nutritious because of the eggs and cream. They would slide down easy and be delicious made in her favorite flavors. Mashed potatoes with ground beef and gravy. Homemade macaroni and cheese made with ziti or other tiny pasta.

    when I had to get dentures I would cook dry bean with hamburger. I would brown HB and then beans and waterand seasoning and I would mash my beans while they were cooking to make a thick gravy and eat as a soup.It was very filling and good protein.

    It is Halibut season on the West Coast. Fish should be easy to eat without bottom teeth.

    Most soups can be pureed.

    Chicken Noodle soup, or Split Pea, or Potato Soup, all soft and taste good.

    Spaghetti, stuffed shells & lasagna
    soft chicken nuggets chopped in 1/2
    applesauce and most canned fruits and be "gummed"
    meatloaf that is crumbled

    My Dad didn't wear his lower dentures and he really could eat almost anything he wanted. He just cut some of it smaller than others.

    You could put the food in a blender. I use to make my baby food this way when my babies were real little.

    When I had teeth pulled waiting for dentures I made mashed potatoes with cheese melted in them. I used either velveeta or cheez whiz. I love that. The other thing was soups. Mashed potatoes with meat gravy or just any gravy was another fav. If you are worried about protein you could add baby food to gravy Oh hard boiled eggs or any eggs are good. As you can tell I love cheese and I put it in my eggs when I scramble them.
