So I finally got my wisdom teeth pulled out (after delaying it twice in the past year). Lucky for me, the drugs are working wonders and so far, it hasn't been too painful (though my roommate tells me that the second day is always the worst). I've been consuming lots of soft foods (the obvious: smoothies, blended soups, udon, etc.) I found that Japoinaise Bakery (on Beacon St, Brookline) has a scrumptious version of bread pudding; just enough heavy cream with a little bit of citrus and handful of juicy, plump raisins covered with a generous dash of cinnamon. However, I could barely pick out the pieces of bread, probably because they use their shoku-pan (fluffy, thick slices of Japanese-style white bread). Would not have minded a tiny bit more texture.
I also discovered that Trader Joe's has a pretty acceptable version of tapioca pudding (rice pudding is next on the list). Any other suggestions for soft foods that I can try around Boston while the four gaping holes in my mouth recuperates? TIA.
