swollen throat - what to eat?

I was diagnosed with mononucleosis a few days ago. Fortunately, I have access to a full kitchen and a family who is more than willing to help cook for me

Unfortunately, my throat is really swollen, preventing me from opening my mouth fully and swallowing completely. Also, I have found many acidic foods to irritate my throat, but dairy is more than fine. Warm foods are especially soothing. I am still hungry and have no stomach issues, but this means many of my favorite foods are simply too painful to eat. I know this is only going to last a month or so, but that's a record long time for me to go without my morning Kashi fix!

As of now, I've been mostly consuming oatmeal and pasta. Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance!
