Mrs ERJ and I are still taking food to mom and dad on Fridays.

Dad's throat has become sensitive and foods that "tickle" going down trigger coughing and his gag reflex.  Smooth, easy-to-chew foods have become the order of the day.

Today we are taking mashed potatoes, fricassee and blueberry pie filling.

Fricassee is one of those dishes that used to be fashionable.  It is little more than meat cooked in gravy.  For my dad, the meat is thinly cut across-the-grain to make it easy to chew.
