Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili
Quick and easy recipe. Also tasty. I have to puree my food and this works out great. Lots of fiber and protein.

Egg in a Hole
I have been making these for years. I use butter, & my OLD buscuit cutter to make the hole. I also toast the 'hole'. I always called it 'egg in the basket'. I now have to puree my food and these are easy to swallow if you add milk, syrup, or other thinning liquid to puree it.

Homemade Albondigas Soup
I have made this soup many times. When I am in a hurry, or have little time, I use FULLY COOKED frozen Italian style meatballs and through them in with the broth and the rest of the ingredients. The frozen meatballs are great to have around and take only 15 minutes to heat up. Also great to serve when you have unexpected company. Quick & easy. Very, very good.
