  1. Fills usually are every 3 months ..being able to eat more than cup of food is normal, your band has very little to no Fluid in it yet. They want you to internally healed before any fills are started. slippage concerns .. seldom happens and 99% of them are due to lack of common sence. As you progress you'll figure! out what you can and can't handle but never force yourself to vomit! and don't feel foolish asking questions .. that's the purpose of site.

    1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cut into chunks

  3. Ingredients 8 - 12 Fresh Mushrooms 1 6 ounce can of clams, drained and finely minced (save 1/4 cup of clam juice for stuffing) 1 green onion, chopped fine (about 1 tablespoon) 1 egg, beaten 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs 1 teaspoon oregano leaves 1 tablespoon melted butter (cooled) 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese 1 tablespoon finely grated Romano cheese 2 tablespoons finely grated mozzarella cheese (for stuffing) 1/4 cup finely grated mozzarella cheese (for garnish) 1/4 cup melted butter

    Instructions Wash mushrooms and remove stems, pat dry. Save stems for another recipe. In a mixing bowl, place clams, onions, garlic salt, minced garlic, soft butter and oregano. Mix thoroughly. Add Italian bread crumbs, egg, and clam juice and blend. Stir cheeses in clam stuffing and mix well.

    Place clam mixture inside mushroom cavity and slightly mound clam mixture. You should be able to stuff between 8 and 12 mushrooms depending on the size of mushrooms.

    Place mushrooms in lightly oiled baking dish. Pour melted butter over mushrooms. Cover and place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 35 and 40 minutes. Remove cover, sprinkle freshly grated mozzarella cheese on top of the mushrooms and pop them back in the oven just until the cheese melts slightly. Garnish with freshly diced parsley.

  4. directions: Dice celery, carrots, onion, potatoes and bell pepper into 1/4-inch pieces. Chop tomatoes; reserve all juice. Place vegetables, tomatoes with their juice, chicken pieces, parsley and garlic in a 10-quart stockpot. Add Water. Season with salt and pepper. Slowly bring Soup to a boil over low heat. Skim off foam that rises to the surface; may have to skim 2 or 3 times. Partially cover pot and simmer 2 hours. When soup is finished, remove chicken pieces with a slotted spoon. Let cool.

    Meanwhile, mash vegetables in the bottom of the pot with the back side of a large cooking spoon or a potato masher. When chicken has cooled enough to handle, remove skin and bones and return meat to soup.
