Ricotta cheese peda/sweet

Hi There..Hope everyone is good and had an excellent week..with the fall colors over here and the constant fight between sun and wind I too enjoyed my weekend.
Last week was a tough time for me... I had my dental visits as result of slight tooth ache.. and to my horror the doctor was behind my wisdom teeth..After a long talk the doctor told me to come for the wisdom  teeth extraction...My hubby dear...being very kind to me took the nearest extraction date...I tried all the tricks to keep teeth in position and to avoid any injections...but those failed :(..My main prob was injection...not the tooth extraction..;),...ya true...I fear injections at this age too...Anyways reached back that day...checked with everyone about the pain of teeth extraction and everyone lied to me saying it takes just a min after injection...which I came to know later.

Anyways I went on the appointed date and as always pulled my hubby to the extraction room to wait there till the injection was given to me..Oh my... I think the doctors should change the syring size...My doc came with a huge syring...like something that is used on cow...seeing that itself my BP increased...anyway I can't cry like a kid...so closed my eyes with mouth wide open and he gave me a prick...Thats over..He left me for 15 mins...Now I was brave...so asked my hubby to go...My biggest mistake :(

After 15 min the doc came..he asked me if I felt the lip as thick...I told ya....but..I can feel the teeth and gum....doc said  hmmm...
Now he came with another syring...a bit smaller than the earlier one..Oh no...I regretted for sending my hubby back...anyways he pricked and started his work...Now I was waiting for the 1 min when he would remove my teeth...He started off with a hammer kind of stuff..hit my teeth...off and on...went on trying all his tools with all his energy for approx 3 min to 5 min....Each time he pulls...I was expecting my teeth in his hands...but no :(..and to make matters worst he was saying everything he was doing...which slowly died off..
After some time..the doc felt that the tools he brought was not sufficient to remove my teeth...so he ordered the assistant tro get something...He explained me that there will be a loud sound...I just felt to run from that place...Anyways he put that new tool into my mouth and drilled..or I felt so...What would ul expect after that...theeth came out...isnt it...I did that..
But you should never expect.. He after drilling for some tim,e..kept that tool and started using his previous stuffs again...Again the process of pull ..push..... went for 3 min approx and finally...ufff...he got my teeth...Noooo thats not the end..
He went and brought another injection...and gave that...Now I had lost all hopes of getting up from that chair..so I was sitting there waiting for next stuff..when the assistant told...You are good to go...

Now I was so happy to come out and meet my hubby to say a big thanks to him for showing me this very beautiful day...that I left the medical prescription..ya which they brought and gave...
Now before I could reach home it started paining...and you know what...now the medicines are over and today when I type this also my pain is there...intact...So sceduled a visit today...:( I wished badly that I never meet him again...but no luck..

This is how my last two/one and half week was...

Now to the recipe...I always try to participate in some contest that is hosted by my friends...but always I end up unsuccessful...I cook the recipe but dont blog about it and by the time I blog the same place will have another contest...This has been happening for a long time....hopping to change that atleast this time...
Made this peda/sweet  with ricotta cheese...which is very delicious...do give a try

  10. I can relate to your story. Ten years back I had my wisdom tooth removed and went through almost the same story.I think you have a condition called dry socket which needs immediate attention. The treatment part for this is not painful so don't hesitate to go to the dentist.You will probably given a periopacking, antibiotics and pain killer.I hope your painful days are over soon.By the way cheese peda looks excallent.

  53. Hi Maya,
    I have never tried with non diary creamer powder..I think it tastes different from milk..may be there will be a taste difference...Not sure..If trying it do let me know the end result..
