Soup Menu

I’m still recovering from my wisdom teeth removal. I’m brushing and rinsing 4 to 6 times a day, as recommended.

I mixed together water and tea tree oil to make a mouthwash, since tea tree oil has always helped me heal super quickly! It does taste pretty gross, though.

We’re sticking with soups this week because of the afore mentioned reason, and since it’s in the 30’s outside, if we’re lucky. It went from very nice out to very cold in just a few days!

Sunday dinner – tomato soup
Monday – chili with corn bread
Tuesday – chicken veggie soup
Wednesday – chili served over mashed sweet potatoes
Thursday – chicken veggie rice soup
Friday – split pea chowder
Saturday lunch – spaghetti
Saturday dinner – small steaks

Soups are such a nice way to warm up on a cold day. Another nice way to warm up would be a hot water bottle, but I can’t find one to purchase anywhere! I’ve mentioned before that our microwave died months and months ago, and we never replaced it. Apparently the only hot packs that you can buy now are one you have to heat in the microwave. I’d love to put a hot pack on my cheeks to help the swelling in my jaw go down, but I think I’m out of luck until I come up with a microwave-less alternative.

Let me know if you have any ideas!

Hope your recovery is coming along, and you're soon back on solid food.

Have you checked your favorite CVS for a hot water bottle?

Thanks for the tip Kay! I've only checked Wal-Mart, the grocery store, and the health food store. I should have thought to try the drug store!

Hi Everybody,
Here's an idea for a poor-man's hot water bottle: Hot water in a sealable baggie. Don't laugh, it might work untill you get to a CVS.
Love, Dad :-)

That's a great idea, Dad. If I wrapped it in a thin towel, I think that would work just fine. I'd have to be careful not to squeeze it, though! Thanks Dad!
