IF anyone HAS to get cancer, I would wish that they would receive the kind of love and care that we have. Before undergoing surgery we were given a cookbook by our nutritionist which I began to cook through while we awaited our approaching surgery date. One of the recipes that was a hit then was corn pudding. It is super easy with only a few ingredients. Best of all it is pretty soft and fluffy...think soufflé!
Dad is doing as well as can be expected, better even in some peoples opinion. We are halfway through week 2 out of 6 weeks of radiation. He seems to be tolerating his situation and still enjoying life everyday. I wish that we were all as fortunate!
UPDATED: Upon removal of the dish from the oven and a tasting by yours truly, I try to taste everything as though I too were on the soft food diet, I found the whole kernel still retained its shape and crunch. Don't get me wrong, it is yummy, but I am hoping when he is ready to eat it the kernels will have softened a bit. Otherwise I suppose swallowing a few corn kernels won't be the end of the world...
