Shabbos in One Hour: Post Yom Tov


Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back to cooking ;).  Another Shabbos is on its way and what better way to get back into the swing of things than to only spend one hour on Shabbos prep?

Here’s a simple menu that anyone could make.  Even the shopping list is simple!

The Menu

Part of the reason we have this menu is because I have meatballs in the freezer from before Rosh Hashana.  Even though I won’t have to cook them, they are a breeze to make and freeze really well in case you want to double-up on the recipe.
