My husband has been having some scary issues with choking, and so for the time being has been put on a strict non-solid-foods-only diet (basically, nothing that requires being chewed).
Naturally I'm grateful to have a solution that's working, but, as you can imagine, am quickly running out of foods to make! We've done the obvious — smoothies, Cream of Wheat, veggies steamed and pureed, and pureed soups — but I've cycled through all the interesting options I can think of.
What else can I make that's safe for him to eat? He'll eat pretty much anything. The only criterion is it has to be choke-proof. (Perhaps this is good practice for when we have babies — I imagine little ones' eating habits might look somewhat similar!)

Kelly, wow, that does sound like a challenge. It is indeed like having a small child at the table, except your husband probably has much more grown-up tastes than a toddler!
Our thoughts and suggestions run mainly towards the things you've already tried (here are all our soups from 2009
) but we also wonder about adding some rice. Can he eat small amounts of rice, or perhaps jook, rice soup?
Readers, do you have suggestions for Kelly?
