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!!!

My thoughts on leftovers

Raise your hand if you're REALLY great about eating leftovers?? Yeah, I'm not raising mine either. Food that goes uneaten is money wasted in my mind, so unless I have enough for a freezer meal, I avoid making extra food whenever possible. Especially meat! So what i do, for example, is because I know that we will never eat a whole roast in one sitting, I buy a nice sized one and cut it in half. I have this handy little gadget that I actually got from a Groupon and I love it. It's called a Frisper by a company called Oliso. It works just like a Food Saver but it's way smaller and was way cheaper!! And using it keeps my frozen meats so much better! Anyway, today I was able to get roast on sale B1G1. So I got 2 for $20 and cut them both in half. That's $5 per meal! And I know that none of it will go to waste :) Win-win! If your family is really great at eating leftovers my hat's off to you because it just doesn't happen over here.
