I had my wisdom teeth and four baby teeth out three days before Christmas one year! I was a little slow with eating on Christmas Day, but managed to eat all the typical holiday foods (turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, pie, etc). I also found burritos to be a good food, since you can mostly eat with your front teeth, and not need your molars at all. Just warn your friend to be sure to do exactly what the doctor orders in regards to taking care of the holes in her mouth! I wasn't really good about the aftercare, and it healed badly, so that future dentists have all said the scar tissue in my mouth looks really funky!
