A three day Yom tov is never easy. Living in Israel it almost never happens. Everyone kind of panics when it does. It would be funny if I weren’t panicking along with everyone else. The way I do it is a find a few shortcuts and quick recipes to make it easier on myself. If you want you can cook all of these beautiful dishes in under two hours.

A more serious is that we just keep stuffing ourselves with food. My recomendation is to make lighter and smaller meals. There is no need to make 5 course meals with a gazillion dishes. Keep the meals simple, healthy and delicious and everyone will be satisfied (ok maybe not your mother-in-law, but that’s a whole different issue).

Always remember that soups are wonderful. They are filling, low in calories, inexpensive to make and quick. I think soups qualify as enviornmentally friendly. They conserve time, energy and money. Serve them at every meal.

The menu plan below is versatile. Some of the dishes can be made either vegetarian or with meat. The meals can be made quickly, some on the spot, so that you aren’t left with a refrigerator full of food, and they are all simple and super-quick!
