Shabbat Menu- The Shortest Shabbat of the Year

One major perk about living in my community is that the kids don’t come home from school on Friday until 2 PM! So even on a short winter Friday, I’m usually able to find one second to bake. When I say one second, I do sometimes mean making the whole thing directly in a nine by 13 pan. 

Baking is usually the last thing I do and fully depends on whether everything else is done before the kids come home. But still, I feel like I am racing the clock the whole day, and with this week being the shortest Shabbat of the year, I am sure you can relate! 

Put together your menu plan now with these incredibly easy recipes, so you aren’t racing quite as much this Friday!

Happy Cooking!
