For a while now, I have been posting my montly menus on Facebook. Well, I decided to create a blog so that more people will have the opportunity to check in and hopefully be inspired. As for the name of the blog, Sherri's Sanity, that is what montly menu planning is for me; my sanity. With 3 young kids, I do NOT have the patience for the clock to turn 5 and have no plan for dinner, it just adds to the craziness to the "witching hours" (those insane hours at the end of the day where we, moms, try to jam-pack 4 hours worth of stuff into 2) I HATE the hours of 5pm-8pm. BUT I have found that in my (almost) year of planning monthly menus, I have been so much less of a headcase during that time. When mom is happier, hubby and kids are happier. AND their tummies will be filled with yummy homemade food; even better!!Now, this blog will definitely take time to put together. Once again, I am a mother of 3 small kids and although I wish I could just sit down and crack it all out, that just isnt going to happen. So, check back often and I will try and keep things rolling. :) Another thing that fills my bucket, so to speak, is crafting! So I'm sure that will come along on the blog shortly too. Happy planning!!!

Pesto Chicken Wraps

This recipe is from my neighbor, Jessica. It is so simple and quickly became one of our fav's! Here's what you'll need

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 C pesto
Wet mozzerella cheese
Spinach or green leaf lettuce
Red bell pepper
Flavored tortillas (we use the green Mission ones)

Marinade your chicken in about 3/4 C pesto for about an hour.

Roast your peppers in the oven by cutting in half length-wise, removing seeds, stem and membrane, and spraying with cooking oil. Place skin side up on a greased dish and broil until skins are nice and charred. Allow to cool long enough to where they won't melt a baggie, then place in the baggie to "sweat". Peel/remove skins when cool enough to handle. Slice into strips lengthwise.

You can either pan fry your chicken breasts or grill them. Cut into strips after cooking...I tried baking this last time and don't recommend it because they turned out very dry :(

Assemble your wraps with a little additional pesto (optional), chicken, peppers, mozz cheese and spinach or lettuce. My kids even like a drizzle of ranch dressing. YUM!


  1. This looks so delicious. Have you ever tried making your own pesto?

  2. I'm making this tonight. Wish me luck. He he! :)
