In Parsha Yitro, Moshe’s father-in-law comes to visit. And like all in-laws, has some advice for the leader of the Jewish people. Of course, Yitro is right. Moses is spending all day standing on his feet judging disputes between neighbors, deciding matters of Jewish law and acting as an intermediary between the Children of Israel and G-d. This could, as you might imagine, get a little tiring. Yitro recommends the establishment of a formal legal and judiciary system, providing a lifetime of nachas to future generations of Jewish lawyers (and their parents).
Standing at the foot of Mount Sinai, we, the Israelites, witness thunder, lightning, smoke and the sound of the shofar and experience the declaration of the 10 Commandments. This week’s Shabbat menu will honor our receiving the 10 commandments with 5 recipes that only require 10 minutes or less to prepare.
Nothing says quick and delicious like a hot tomato soup.
Pan roast your meat and keep it warm on a hot plate or serve at room temperature with lots of yummy chimichurri sauce.
Quick potatoes made in one pot next to your steak.
One more dish with quick prep, just chop and toss and place in your hot oven.
Somehow bars seem fancier than cookies, but they are also even faster and easier to make and these are S'mores flavor!!!
