Shabbat Menu- Make Once, Eat Twice

I call this time of year “The 8-Week Rush—”


Purim and Pesach are on my mind, of course, plus whatever happens to fit into that time period on a given year. No complaints, especially when it’s good things, but I’m good at making lists and not as good at crossing things off, especially the big things that take large chunks of time. So I seek out the little things that can get knocked off my list easily. 

This week, we’re trying to help you cross one big(ish!) thing off your list— what to serve for Shabbat that comes in as Purim is leaving. It’s a tricky year, so we recommend freezing some things this week so that you can have as little stress as possible on Purim Friday.  

Double these for Shabbat, freeze half, (raw or cooked, whatever works for you) and you’ll have Purim Friday ready and waiting in the freezer.

Happy Cooking!
