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!!!

July menu and noteworthy sales

July is finally OUR month to travel. I feel like everyone but us has gone on vacation this summer!! But since we will be traveling I am keeping my menu very simple and will be focusing most of my big shopping trip on restocking my shelves and grabbing snacks for a long road trip. All of my menu items have been posted before, so feel free to look back at old menus for inspiration and links.

I do want to give you a quick review of the Peach Whiskey Barbeque Chicken. It was absolutley delish! The sauce was to die for and I wish I would have taken the advice to make mashed potatoes as a side so I could use more of the sauce. I did alter the recipe a bit; I used about half of the whiskey and about 2/3 of the peach preserves and added a bit more BBQ sauce.
