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!!!

Paleo Sweet Potato Soufflé

So, my husband and I have been experimenting with a Paleo diet lately (we aren't perfect by any means!) and we are both liking the results! I have this killer Sweet Potato Soufflé recipe that we'll make a few times a year, not just at Thanksgiving, because it's just too good. I experimented tonight to turn it into a Paleo recipe and it turned out awesome!! Hope you like it :)

3 C cooked/mashed sweet potatoes (about 2 large potatoes)
3/4 C real maple syrup
1/2 C raw honey
1/4 C coconut oil
1/3 C coconut flour
3 eggs
1 Tbsp tapioca flour
1 tsp vanilla

Mix everything, minus potatoes, then add potatoes and mix (I like mine a little chunky) pour into medium greased casserole dish

Mix together
1/3 C soft butter
1/3 C almond flour
1/3 c chopped pecans
1 Tbs real maple syrup
Dash cinnamon

Put in even "glops" on top of potato mixture

Bake in a preheated oven at 350* for about 45-60 min, or until it sets up and topping is lightly brown
