Who is sick of purees? Some fresh ideas...

Ramekins are the best! They heat so nicely in the microwave or oven. Hubby, however, is sick of looking at the stacks of half eaten ramekins I have stashed in the fridge. I keep overfilling them and can't eat it all. I hate wasting food so I keep shoving them in the fridge but then never eat the rest. Oops!
Thank you for these recipes - I will definitely try that pumpkin one [emoji4]
Are you measuring your food? I use ramekins and both weigh and measure volume to ensure I don't over fill.

Yes, I was measuring from the beginning (by weight with a digital scale); it has just taken some time to figure out how much I need to eat. I'm much better already (only a week later) at knowing how much to serve myself. I'm also no longer struggling with the food aversions I was having. Sometimes 1 bite was all I could do and I kept saving because I thought I'd try again later or the following day. I'm happy to say, all of that is going much better. Thanks for checking in!

I made chicken gravy. 6 boneless and skinless chicken thighs baked in chicken broth. Cooked for about an hr. then poured it all in the blender. To make gravy flour, butter and heavy whipping cream then add the chicken. Served over potatoes. Was really good. This has been the best thing I’ve had in 2 wks.

@Naughty Glitter Goddess Do you make your own refried Beans? Special recipe?

I do not. I buy refried Beans from a local mexican fast food drive thru taqueria. The canned ones were too thick and pasty for me. I tried to thin them out but it's just not the same as homemade, and I don't know how to make homemade beans taste amazing. I would buy one $3 container and it would last 4 meals. Luckily, I'm 5 mo post-op so I've moved on to regular foods but I still eat these beans :)

OMG I can’t wait to get out of the liquid stage and try some of your recipes! My doctor requires 21 day liquid and I am already so tired of it but doing as told.

Hi Naughty Glitter Goddess! Hope all is well on your end. I had my gastric sleeve surgery December 17th. Can you give me your recipe for the refried Beans? I never made them before but I’m willing to try.

Yes give me all the recipes! I especially like the idea of using nutritional yeast.
