Dear Helen, are you looking for sweets or savories or both?

I was watching Paula Deen on TV the other day and she was making a nice 
chicken and rice casserole.  It occurs to me that it did not differ all 
that much from SCA-period "blancmange" does not?  You can sneak a lot of 
nutrition into that and still be nice and "soft" for his tender mouth.  
I can't help but think that some proper animal proteins will help him 
heal faster.   Yes, this is a dish served sweet!  Look here:  

Healing and strength to all your family,
