Shabbos in One Hour: Pre-Pesach

shabbos_one_hourI’ve started making Shabbos in one hour and it’s awesome.  So, if you haven’t done this already then now- the week before Pesach is the perfect time to start!

Below is the menu I’m making and how I’m going to do it.  It’s great for before Pesach because it doesn’t have chametz (only kitniyos)!  So, here we go…

The Menu

Friday Dinner:

Shabbos Lunch:


The Shopping List:

  • carrots
  • challah
  • chicken bottoms
  • cucumber
  • dessert
  • eggs
  • flour
  • frozen vegetables
  • gefilte fish
  • grape/cherry tomatoes
  • mayonnaise
  • onion
  • onion soup mix
  • rice
  • salad bag
  • salad dressing
  • string beans
  • sweet potatoes
  • turkey pieces

The Plan:

  1. Boil pot of water on stove for gefilte fish
  2. Peel carrots, cut onion for gefilte fish
  3. Put frozen vegetables for kugel into microwave to defrost
  4. Pre-heat oven for chicken and rice
  5. When water in pot is boiling add frozen loaf of gefilte fish, carrots, onions and any spices you want
  6. Peel sweet potatoes
  7. Place sweet potatoes, string beans and turkey into pan.  Sprinkle with garlic powder and paprika.  Cover and place in fridge until cooking time.
  8. Prepare chicken and rice.  Put in oven.
  9. Prepare vegetable kugel.  Put in oven.

Add store-bought challah, dessert and a salad bag with cucumber and tomatoes and the menu is complete!  If I do all these steps Thursday night, then the only thing left is to put my turkey in the oven a few hours before Shabbos begins.

And there ya have it.  Shabbos in one hour!

Until next time,
