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!!!

Recipe Review: Dijon Chicken Linguine with Chanterelle Mushrooms and Toasted Almonds

This recipe was from Pinterest. The photo looked amazing and I was super excited to try it. Firstly, I don't love pan cooked chicken. I decided I was going to grill mine, but 3 minutes into grilling I ran out of propane. BOO!! Shame on me for trying to change the cooking instructions. Into the pan it went. The sauce was SUPER easy to make, so for that I give a huge thumbs up. Overall the meal was pretty good. Was it something completely different than I've ever tried before? No. The sauce was super rich and not packed with a ton of flavor so it felt like I needed more "stuff" to go with it; more than the chicken, mushrooms and almonds (which were just so-so with the meal). Artichoke hearts? Asparagus? Not sure. Just something.

My 6 year old din't like it. My 4 year old liked it but without mushrooms. My hubby likes everything so he doesn't count. So, will I make it again? Possibly. But it won't be on the menu next month...
