Thank you from he bottom of my slightly murmuring heart for all you’r get well wishes! I’m so glad I took the plunge and just got that sucker out. I’m still sore, but I was worse off with the tooth in.
And….I managed to have some raw veggies today. Mind you, my whole left side is completely fine, so a lot of the munching was going on there. But still, I was very appreciative of my slightly crunchy lunch (although its not like I’m chomping on apples and rock hard bread).
Anyhow, I wanted a lighthearted post today since my sore mouth has made me….well….bitter. So to cheer myself (and hopefully, you) up, I thought I’d introduce to you some new food terms:
Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity: IHOP’s two eggs, two pieces of bacon, two sausage links, and two buttermilk pancakes topped with fruit and whipped cream. Sounds delicious, but is way too embarrassing to order.
Lunchables: Bad food that lazy parents send their kids to school with
Activia: Yogurt for women in khakis (see also, middle age)
Chocolate Chip Pancakes on a Stick: Yep, pancake batter covering a sausage link. I honestly did not think it was real, but it is. Brought to you by the lovely people at Jimmy Dean. See also “white trash”.
McLak Salmon Burger: Actually sold by McDonalds in more northern-oriented countries like Norway, and a guess a great way to get those omegas!
Extra Fancy Ketchup: When you want to give fries, burgers, or hashbrowns the fancy glove treatment.
Marzipan A sickeningly sweet almond paste and often shaped into barely edible creatures or fruit.
Uncrustables: Because traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are just too hard to make, Smuckers now offers a frozen one. I think I was the only kid who prefered the crust.
Foods of Disbelief: In other words, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and I Can’t Believe It’s Yogurt

I thought I’d share with you my soup i had for dinner last night, post wisdom removal, of course. Here’s what got blended:
-four or five large cauliflower florets (steamed)
-2-3 broccoli florets (steamed)
-about 1/4 cup greek yogurt
-1 tbs raw almond butter (yes, trust me!)
-1 cup chicken or veggie broth
-2 tbs avocado (or a 1/4 of a medium one)
-salt and pepper to taste
Blend everything in your blender of choice and add water according to your consistency of choice. I wasn’t going for too smooth so I left it on the thicker side. I added spaghetti squash “noodles” for the fun of it. Goes brilliantly with a crusty sandwich or croutons (which i sadly had to avoid due to soreness). Anyhow, the night concluded with lots of ice cream which was perfect because it was not only yummy, it numbed out my mouth a bit. Thankfully, there is a return to more solid food today, yay!
Stay tuned! I have a few giveaway in the works….trust me, I would want to win them too!
