Ouch indeed Mike, I feel your pain. The getting old, changing the diet thing is pretty sucky. Those dishes look great!
Along the special diet theme I need ideas for soft food (no I'm not getting that old). My son had his wisdom teeth out on Friday and he still has trouble chewing.
Baked mac and cheese
Spagetti last night, and that was hard for him to eat
I'm poaching some cod tonight
But I'm running out of ideas, Any suggestions? He doesn't like eggs.
