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!!!

Banana Berry Oat Muffins

2 Cups quick oats
1 1/2 Cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 Cups white flour
1/2 Cup flax meal
1/2 C sugar plus 2 Tbs
1/2 Cup honey
3-4 ripe bananas
2/3 Cup milk
1 Cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
12 oz berries (I have used blueberry and sliced strawberry OR chocolate chips)

Mix all ingredients minus berries in a high capacity mixer or mix wet ingredients and then add dry and mix well, folding in berries last.

Use an ice cream scoop (or about 1/3 C) to fill well greased muffin pans. Sprinkle all muffins with a bit of sugar. Bake in a preheated oven at 350* for about 20 min, or when a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Makes 2 dozen

We like to eat them fresh out of the oven or chilled in the fridge
