Help! I need "Soft Food" recipes!

I need your help, friends and family! I had a gum graft done on Friday and can only eat "soft foods" for 30 days! I'm going to get tired of mac & cheese real fast. So, if you have any great "soft food" (i.e. pasta, soups, etc.) recipes, please share them with me. I'm desperate!

I'm experiencing the need to eat only soft foods and have devised some very delicious recipes that I'm happy to share.
1. Chicken sections simmered in spaghetti sauce until ready to fall off the bone. Serve with Capellini pasta or Angel Hair pasta (capellinin is thinner than the angel hair) which can be chopped up if needs be.

2. Flour chicken sections, brown in large skillet on both sides using as little cooking ouil as possible for the browning. and thin strips of jalapeno or bell pepper between each chicken piece, sprinkle a few chopped garlic cloves over all, place a tomato slice on each piece of chicken (optional) you could top the meat with any sliced veggies of your choice even chopped bacon. pour in enough water or broth you prefer or cream of mushroom soup diluted with water to a depth that will not flow over skillet, cover and simmer on low heat for about 45 mins. to an hour checking once in a while to make shure chicken is not sticking to skillet bottom. about 20 minutes before you have reached your desired tenderness place baby potatoes between chicken pieces, cover and let simmer again...checking doneness in 15 mins. to avoid potatoes becoming mushy.
OTHER suggestions:cooking any chunks of meats or meatballs in spaghetti sauce.
Shepards pies using varied ground meat.
Stuffed cabbage rolls
Chopped cabbage lightly browned then simmered in tomato sauce.
soft biscuits covered in creamed chipped beef or any small pieces of left over meats.
Corned beef and cabbage with red potatoes.
Cottage cheese with canned fruit, avacado, berries and etc.
Meatloafs with mashed potatoes and gravy.
Swedish meatloaf with egg noodles.
Macaroni, Tomato and Cheese casserole.
Oriental Chicken rice soup.
French Tortiere pie covered with creamed corn or gravy.
Pan fried or baked fish with Bearnaise sauce and a side of clam chowder.
Tuna sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches, deviled or ground ham salad sandwiches.

The list stops when your imagination does.
