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: Rumbi Mango Chicken and Rice

I mentioned that I was trying a few new recipes this month.  We had the Rumbi Mango Chicken and Rice for dinner last night. It was just OK :( I would give it 3 of 5 stars. It didn't taste bad, it just didn't taste like a whole lot, to be honest. I was itching for more flavor. I even cooked the rice in coconut milk as suggested.  The cumin and lemon pepper were "to taste" and I think I added plenty without taking the flavor away from the sweet and savory mango salsa. It was, however, SUPER easy to make. I actually had some leftover chicken breasts, so I just threw the rice in the rice cooker and everything else to warm over the stove. Took about 10 min. (plus cooking time for the rice). So, for that factor I MIGHT make it again.

  1. Sherri, try adding a little bit of coconut extract to the rice, it made all the difference for me :)
