Satisfying & healthy soft foods for those with dental problems?

Help! Last night I underwent crown lengthening surgery. Basically my dentist carved away some jaw bone around one of my molars. Unfortunately, this means I can only eat soft foods for 7 days. This has proven much more difficult than expected! What are some reliably satisfying, tasty, relatively healthy "soft foods?" I can't look at another bowl of soup, yogurt or mashed potatoes.
