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!!!

April Menu

I'm sorry that it's been a few months since I've posted!! I've found that the past few months have been very....lack luster in the dinner department! I would love to hear from my readers what some of your families favorite recipes are!! If you have a link to a recipe, even better! I will try and implement some in my next menu :)

Grilled chicken, artichokes, fruit salad

Thai coconut curry noodles (plus chicken!)(ok, heres how I do this recipe...Grill up some chicken, make the sauce, steam some broccoli and carrots, pop edamame in the microwave and let the kids pop the pods, sautee green onion and mushrooms, throw it all together. The kids get noodles, us grown-up go no-carb)

Egg Salad sandwiches

Tortilla Soup

Sriracha lime salmon, salad

Meatball sandwiches  (half this recipe, I use ground turkey so use less breadcrumbs or they'll be dry, bake as directed and serve on crusty rolls with cheese, olives and whatever else you like), raw veggies and dip

Roasted turkey, sweet potato soufflé, green bean casserole

Cheesesteaks, chips

Swedish Meatballs, green beans

Honey butter pork, salad, corn on the cob

Fajitas, chips and guac, fruit

Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, broccoli
