First of all, I’m sorry I have been MIA the past couple of weeks. First, work got really busy and I didn’t have time to come up with any new dishes to share with my lovely readers. Then my family rolled into town, which made for some great blogging material and will be posted later this weekend. And today I got my three wisdom teeth out (apparently I don’t have a fourth).

instant mashed potatoesThis means lots of pudding, jello, yogurt, instant mashed potatoes, soup, sorbet and smoothies. I was almost embarrassed when I was checking out at the grocery store, especially for the instant mashed potatoes. Surprisingly, they turned out to taste pretty decent, but maybe that was because I was starving since I had been fasting all day for my oral surgery.

I’ve also been drinking LOTS of pineapple juice because it contains high doses of the enzyme bromelain, which is a natural anti-inflammatory. And at the advice of a friend from high school via Facebook, I’ve filled two long socks with frozen peas and tied them together to wrap around my face. This makes icing both sides at the same time a lot easier. Thanks, Kendall (and Ari)!

GGD was nice enough to pick me up from the dentist, listen to the nurse’s instructions, take me home, make me instant mashed potatoes and spend the day with me watching romantic comedies and 90’s movies, such as She’s All That.

Thanks to all my other friends for their advice on soothing foods and other recovery tricks. I can’t wait until I’m fully recovered so I can eat real food! What should my first meal be?

Stay tuned for some posts on seared leg of lamb, Napa Valley restaurants, Spring Mountain wineries, and my experience at Shafer Vineyards.
