4 Crowns and A Root Canal

4 crowns and a root canal means a lot of soup and mashed potatoes. I have been on a soft foods diet for the last two weeks and cannot wait to get my permanent crowns cemented so I can eat real food again. I will never take chewing for granted again.

In the meantime please let me share one of my favorite comfort soups.

Chicken Veggie Cheese Soup

  • 1 20oz bag of frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 cups diced potatoes ( I about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 onion diced
  • 4 cooked and shredded chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 12 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1 16oz bottle of cheese whiz

Put above in a pan and cover vegetables with just enough water to cover the vegetables. Boil until tender, and do not drain.

While above is cooking
Boil 2 quarts water with 12 chicken bouillon cubes ( I used Wyler's small cubes)
In yet another pot melt 1/2 cup butter and add flour until thick ( about a cup) Add chicken broth to paste and stir with whisk to break up most lumps. Pour mixture into large pot with veggies/water and stir. Add Cheese whiz to mixture and stir until melted. Add chicken and heat through. Serve and Enjoy!
Can be frozen. I did!


  1. I saw your blog on somebody's sidebar and had to comment since I just went through the same thing. It took 4 weeks to get a crown that fitted correctly on one tooth! I beat you LOL I had 5 crowns done!


  2. Yes, the permanent crowns are great! I don't even feel mine on my teeth and supposedly you can eat anything. But I've given up nuts. That's what happened to one tooth. Had some candied walnuts in a salad and broke off the whole back of one molar! But my husband had a crown down a few months ago and he eats nuts everyday. I just don't want to take the chance!


  3. Oh my Kasha, I'm glad to see you're trying to eat soft and liquid foods during this time. That's so much better than those liquid supplements. The soup sounds comforting.

    Thanks for sharing...

  6. Ok, 'tis the season because I just had 3 crowns and a root canal! Sure wish I had this recipe a month ago...but better late than never! Looks yummy! (Hope you're chewing like your old self soon!)

  7. Sippng your spoon with some of that delightful soup will surely make you feel better. The soup sounds wonderful.

  8. Oh, I hope you're healing well and on chewable food soon!The bright side is you'll be able to enjoy thanksgiving!

  9. Thanks for the great service. root canal was the best investment I ever made. I could probably go into sales for you.
