Food suggestions for someone with a sore mouth on a camping trip?

I have stitches in my tongue and eating anything that's not completely smooth is painful. I've spent the last two days subsisting on broth and ice cream, but this evening I'll be going on a trip to a remote cabin and I need some help deciding what food to bring.

The cabin has a kitchen, fridge, stove, and basic amenities but no fancy kitchenware, so "blend everything!" is out as a strategy. There's a long boat ride to the cabin so frozen things like ice cream will melt before they get there. That's okay - I'm getting pretty sick of sweets.
I need food that I can swallow without chewing - not because chewing is a problem, but because chewing things leads to bits and pieces of food all around my mouth, and my tongue is not up to the task of shepherding that food towards my throat.
The one idea I have so far is mashed potatoes, so I'll be getting supplies for that. I can live off that if I have to - my ancestors did! - but I'd prefer a bit of variety. Suggestions?
