|I think Alex needs this t-shirt...|
I plan on doing an ongoing series on what I've made for Alex to eat...er...drink while his jaw is wired shut. Not necessarily recipes, but at least a list of what works and what doesn't.
McDonald's vanilla shake - thumbs up.
Blended Zuppa Toscana - I had to strain it through a sieve. The end result tasted fine, but there was quite a bit of waste.
Canned Peaches smoothie - dump a can of peaches in the blender, then add a few scoop of vanilla ice cream. I found it too sweet, Daniel didn't like the temperature - he prefers ice cold smoothies. Alex slurped it down.
Yogurt. I bought a few of the "blended" variety from Fred Meyer. It packs 7 grams of protein in one serving. I plan to go to Costco today or tomorrow and buy some Chobani (Greek yogurt) - it has twice as much protein - but I'm a little concerned that I may need to thin it a little so that he can drink it - I'm also a little concerned about the fruit in it. Maybe I can make yogurt smoothies with it?
Ivar's Smoked Salmon Chowder - I dumped a couple of cups into the blender - then poured through a sieve. Not nearly as much waste as the Zuppa Toscana. Alex liked it. I'll check Costco and see if they still have it.
