What to eat after gum surgery

Dear Marg,

My recovery from gum surgery has been an opportunity to indulge in soft food. And since it's hard to buy soft food that's not icky I've been cooking. 

Fagioli a la Toscana with kale

Roasted tomato soup
Roasted tomatoes over polenta with a side of spinach

Spinach soup from Mark Bittman
Braised pork shoulder with polenta

There's also been oatmeal, pasta with cheese, and of course ice cream. I'm planning creamed spinach because if gum surgery isn't a reason to eat a vegetable that is equal parts cream, butter and green matter I don't know what is.
