๐Ÿค”Do My Kids ONLY EAT FREEZER PEANUT BUTTER JELLY Sandwiches? | Large Family Meals of the Week #17

Posted by

– So welcome back friends to
Large Family Meals of the Week.
I think it’s been many weeks,
maybe even a month or two
since I’ve done one of these,
but it’s goin’ down this week.
Today is international Gabriel day,
that’s right, Gabriel turns
10, and he has decided
he wants to go to the pizza buffet.
For 2019, we’ve let all the
kids pick where they wanna eat
for their birthday, and we do
their birthday party at that location.
So he wants a pizza buffet birthday.
We’re getting ready to
hit the road and do that.
One of the big things I share for
Large Family Meals of the Week
is my large family meal plan.
This week I’m cookin’ up
many sheet pan dinners
and I will be defrosting and
heating and showing the process
on how my easy freezer meal
dinners work in real life.
We’ll have a bunch of fruit for breakfast.
I’m makin’ homemade yogurt
and I’m doing granola bars.
It’s all goin’ down, so you’ll
be gettin’ little updates
what we’re doin’ each day and how
we’re handling all the
food for our family of 10.
Lunch time.
You’re havin’ your, you got
shaky cheese on your head.
(child babbles)
(Jamerrill laughs)
Amelia, how’s your lunch?
Goin’ well?
Happy birthday!
Sorry you got something in your eye.
You think it’s rocks?
Could be.
This is Naomi’s present for Gabriel.
– [Child At Table] It’s a dinosaur!
See, it’s your favorite color!
– A pink dolphin? (all laugh)
– [Jamerrill] Sibling jokes.
– [Child At Table] There’s more.
– [Jamerrill] From grandmother, nice.
That’s a big Avenger’s ship, Gabriel.
– T-rex!
– [Jamerrill] More dinosaurs, yes!
Got a Where’s Waldo, oh yeah this
is special art stuff, Gabey.
(children chatter)
Oh and Oregon Trail, we thought
that would be great reading.
Is Daddy puttin’ bracelets on you?
– [Child In Background] Roar, I’m a t-rex!
– [Travis] Hold your wrist out.
– [Child At Table] Ouchie, Daddy!
Daddy, I have these!
– Okay guys, we have
been back from Walmart
and all of our out-and-about birthday fun.
We got back home, kids
played with birthday toys,
and I sat in the van and worked
like a good little YouTuber vlogging mom.
And I’ve been filming this
five easy sheet pan dinners
series for YouTube, so
tonight is night three of it
where I’m doing pork and roasted
potatoes and garlic sheet pan dinner.
These are these cute
little petite potatoes,
and we’ve got the cauliflower in here.
I’m gonna add just a little bit
of paprika and garlic powder.
There’s olive oil in here too.
Gonna coat it and get the pork and get it
all over here on these sheet pans tonight.
Good mornin’, happy Tuesday,
I’ve got a wide variety
of breakfast stuff, and just
kind of like odds and ends
that could count for breakfast
from the refrigerator
that I just put out on the counter here,
and I already have kids outside
jumpin’ on the trampoline,
haven’t eaten breakfast yet.
Way to go, mom, way to
help them start their day.
So anyway, one by one I’m
gonna have them come in,
we’ve got some hard boiled eggs,
little bit of cottage
cheese, various fruits
and some yogurt, so we’re just gonna make
like little snacky breakfast
plates to get the day rollin’.
Here’s Benjamin’s plate.
Those are some eggs left over from Sunday,
last little piece of
cantaloupe from yesterday,
and almost half of a clementine.
Here is Miss Amelia’s choices.
She’s got some meat, some
kiwi and some vanilla yogurt.
Here is Daniel’s, he’s got
a cold hard-boiled egg,
a clementine, slice of turkey
and some vanilla yogurt.
And here is Naomi’s, she’s
got some vanilla yogurt
and fruit and some turkey.
And I’m eating up the
last of the cottage cheese
and some turkey while I
make everyone else’s plates.
There’s Gabriel’s breakfast
and Liam’s breakfast in action.
You’re workin’ on Aldi’s
strawberry yogurt, too.
So we are out in our
forest and it’s lunch time.
We’ve been hikin’ our trails and the kids
are playin’ in the water right now.
Liam is gonna get our current Narnia book
and our bible, we’re gonna
do our reading out here
and eat our fruit and have
some more nature fun time.
Somebody’s having a nice happy time.
Did you come take a break? (laughs)
(child chatters)
And we got the hammock back
up, and Trav is bringin’ loads
of mulch, and Gabriel’s been
workin’ on spreadin’ it out.
So yeah, we’ve been having
a nice outside time, huh?
So kids will be home from dance soon.
This mama here, I need to get
an easy sheet pan dinner in this oven.
So I got bratwurst, a
whole pile of broccoli,
we’re gonna make it into
somethin’, here we go.
Good morning!
We ate up that sheet
pan dinner last night.
This mornin’ we are havin’ apples
and peanut butter for breakfast.
A few of the kids have a yogurt as well.
And we’re startin’ the day off right
by watchin’ River Monsters,
watchin’ ’em catch catfish
with their socked feet and bare hands
while eatin’ breakfast, yee hah.
So really what needs to be goin’ down
is deep upstairs purging and
kid bedroom organization.
So with that in mind, I’m gonna get
some more blueberry bread in the oven.
That’s what I’m doin’.
Kids have been pickin’
rocks out of the back yard
where Travis has been clearing,
and now they have had their
it’s almost time to start
workin’ seriously upstairs
warning, which should give me
15 to 20 minutes or so to
get a bunch of bread goin’.
And then we’ll really get upstairs.
Okay, by evidence of all the dishes,
all of our freezer fruit bread makin’
has gone down this afternoon.
Here we go, we got chocolate
chip and the rest of this is
blueberry, and there’s some
more chocolate chip in the oven.
So we are gettin’ the
freezer shelf full of bread.
This’ll last quite a
while, I believe, or not.
Here’s how dinner turned out tonight.
Now we also had a bunch of
Brussels sprouts with these,
but these are lemon pepper chicken legs.
Recipe will be down in
the description below.
I like ranch and hot sauce,
I had a big pile of carrots,
I’ve since eaten those
so I’m gonna refill ’em.
This is still mine, actually I’ve already
had one chicken leg, so there’s
two, my count confession.
Okay so this mornin’ I’ve
got this pineapple cutter.
We got three pineapples,
they’re nice and golden.
So this is the pineapple slicer I got for,
I don’t know, was it
$4.89 or so from Aldi?
Looks like we’re gonna
cut off the pineapple
in line with these little marks,
“place the cutter on the
top then twist the handle
“with a slight downward pressure
“until you reach the
number marked in step one.
“Then remove the core from the
pineapple, remove the handle,
“to slide core pineapple off slicer.”
So let’s see how this goes.
There’s what the top looks like.
We’re twistin’ it.
Okay, it’s goin’, oh it’s
actually, this is really easy!
Oh my goodness, this is a wonderful thing.
Whoa, look at what we
did, isn’t that cool?
Pretty good for our first
go at this pineapple slicer.
I will be sure to have one linked
down below, or check your Aldi.
Now let’s see how do I
get it off the slicer,
that’s the next thing.
Oh, does this release it?
There we go, way to use your noodle, mama.
Nice pineapple rings.
You wanna be the first pineapple taster?
For your own approval.
(children chatter in background)
Here we go.
So here’s my mama breakfast, I’ve got
a small tomato, cottage
cheese, this is two eggs
with some pepper jack and my big and holy
Pioneer Woman cup full
of coffee, yes and amen.
So it’s lunch time now, errands
have been run, jobs are bein’ done.
I actually just got back
from workin’ outside.
I’m gonna show you what
we’re havin’ for lunch.
Last night I had set out
two of these containers.
This had some of my vegetable
beef soup in the freezer
and I’ve just poured both
of those into this pot.
I’m going to warm this pot back up,
and this’ll be a big
part of our lunch today.
Hey, it’s rainin’ now
and I thought we need
some twice-baked potatoes to
go with this vegetable soup.
So I’m gettin’ a big pan of those
twice-baked potatoes
from the freezer goin’.
Soup is almost done, and I’m gonna
get dinner in the slow cooker.
We’re gonna do pork ragu over
fettuccine noodles tonight.
But since it’s almost 2:30
and we haven’t had lunch yet
’cause we’ve been runnin’
around doin’ lots of house
projects and such, I figured
we’d be eating dinner later.
Late lunch, later dinner, gettin’ it
goin’ in the slow cooker now.
It should be ready about 6:30 or 7.
So here are the potatoes, yay.
And here is some of the
soup, because I can not wait.
This is my soup I made with
the little lentils, also.
I will have the link for the
recipe down in the description.
So with the storms we had this
afternoon, our power went out
for like an hour, so now it’s four.
I guess now it’s four, everyone’s
gonna have a twice-baked potato.
I’m makin’ myself an
afternoon cup of coffee.
I’m getting back into
some organizing projects.
This slow cooker, I mean
everything just sat there frozen
for an hour or so, so I
don’t think it’s gonna,
yeah that’s no way now at four that
that’s gonna be ready at 6:30 for dinner.
They can have it later
tonight when they get back
from TaeKwonDo, they won’t get back
from TaeKwonDo until about eight or so.
Besides that, it’ll
just be dinner tomorrow.
Well it’s Saturday, here we
are, lake ready as you can tell.
Floppy hat season is upon us.
Didn’t film at all yesterday.
Yesterday I had a meeting in the morning,
Travis took the kids out to Lowe’s
to get somethin’ else that
we needed, always happens.
And then we had appointments
for four at the orthodontist.
So then I went to Walmart
to get some new lake stuff
for the season, and that was the day.
And I will show you everything
we’re taking to the lake today.
My dinner plans tonight,
night before last,
Thursday night, I did the
pork ragu in the slow cooker.
We still have that left.
So tonight we’re gonna
have that when we get back
from the lake, and I’ll have
to do the fettuccine noodles.
I would so much rather have
something hot and ready
in the slow cooker for when we get home,
like seven or eight hours from now,
but I know we need to eat that up.
And so I’m just gonna force
myself to eat that tonight.
So here’s what we’re
bringin’ for our lake day.
I will probably condense
this, put these pears
into this bag, and then we
have this bag of mandarins,
and then I have, I
don’t know, probably 20,
I just took what was left
of our freezer PB and Js,
put them all in this bag.
I’m gonna have seven
kids with me and I figure
all of ’em over the course
of seven or eight hours
will probably have two,
at least, strawberry
and peanut butter sandwiches
and a bunch of fruit.
And I don’t know, I’m not seeing myself
bringing any of these home.
We’ll see how the day goes.
These are the cookies.
The cookie deals I got I saved $1.84 each,
got ’em for $1.03 a pack, and you can see
they’re just like nice, big M&M cookies.
So we saved two of those,
I’ll show you at the lake,
and then we even got some
of these little lemon pies.
They were marked down for 15 cents.
So this is going to the lake, too.
Then I’m gonna have our
water bottles filled.
Here’s our food hangin’ out at the lake.
I did stop and get a case of orange soda.
Got myself a water bottle.
We got, there’s a Benny
in all the sand toys.
We’ve pulled out our tent from last year.
Are you havin’ a nice time, Amelia?
You want your goggles on, don’t you?
– I know.
– (Jamerrill laughs). Okay I know.
Okay I know.
You havin’ a good time, Benny?
You got your wild man hair.
Hey Daniel, are you livin’
your best lake life?
(Daniel chatters)
Oh yeah, good deal!
So we made it back, and
dinner time I did it.
Even though I didn’t want to this morning,
I’ve heated the pork ragu
back up in the dutch oven
and I made the noodles, and
I’m gettin’ ready to serve it,
so I did survive, mamas,
even though dinner
wasn’t done when I came in the door.
So Naomi’s out cleanin’
out the van from the fun.
Other kids are getting
showers and in pajamas.
We’ve got church in the mornin’,
and some fun things I’m
hopin’ to make in the mornin’.
But lemme show you what dinner is tonight.
Fettuccine noodles are done
and then here is, voila!
Woo I need to turn that heat down.
Okay, so here’s how dinner’s lookin’.
That’s the pork ragu,
the cheese melted on it
while I was like, “oh, our bonus points,
“we could have a salad.”
So I chopped some tomatoes.
So here’s my Trim Healthy Mama
attempt version of this dinner.
I’m having the pork ragu over cauli
rice instead of the fettuccine.
And I’m havin’ a salad, put some,
I had a bag of shredded cheese,
so I’ve been puttin’ that on stuff.
And that’s it.
I’m gonna take my dinner and
go answer YouTube comments
while I eat, and then get a shower
because church is tomorrow
and I’ll smell good, yay.
So my best laid plans for breakfast
turned into mama just
chopped watermelon real quick
and that’s it, ready, set, go.
So it’s Monday.
I skipped some meals on ya yesterday.
We were out after church
and had some errands,
so Travis decided, “hey
let’s go out to eat.”
And some Sundays we do
that, we have it set aside
in our budget, and yesterday
became, “oh let’s eat out.”
And then we had our pork ragu for dinner
and here it is Monday morning.
This is banana raisin bread
that I just chopped up
for the kids and I’ll show you.
Kids got up before me, ’cause
I had a late night last night,
I stayed up late workin’, but
they also were finishin’ up,
excuse me sweetie,
a little bit of the
watermelon that was left,
and they’ve had a bunch of cuties.
So they can fend for
themselves, but that’s
how the banana bread’s goin’ down.
Yes, summertime.
It’s here, almost officially, but again,
when the floppy hats come out,
you know it’s here to
stay for several months.
I am finally makin’ that yogurt.
I’ve been promisin’ you guys forever
that I was gonna do a video
where I do slow cooker,
homemade slow cooker yogurt and homemade
Instant Pot yogurt in the same video
so we can compare and contrast
the differences, okay?
Okay, I’m doing that today.
And tonight we are having
the shepherd’s pie from the freezer.
So if you guys wanna keep on watchin’
my Large Family Meals of the Week videos
to see how different fresh
meals and freezer meals
and all those good meals go down,
you can click this playlist
that’ll pop up here,
it’ll also be linked
down in the description.
Thank you so much for hangin’
out with us this week.
Look for that yogurt video
’cause I’m filming it
right now in my floppy
hat, so it’ll be out soon.
See ya real soon with
another brand new video.
If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m tryin’
to get videos to come out
Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays.
So those’ll be the set days, and then
there’ll be weeks when
you get bonus videos too.
Okay, bye-bye.

  17. Hi, do you have more freezers ? I would love to see how you store all the food in your freezers . Thank you for amazing vlogs ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. Your children are so gorgeous. Thank you for sharing them with us. When I was well I was a primary school teacher. I absolutely adored all of my children and I can remember them all. Some have even sent a friend request on Facebook. In saying that I helped a few families set up for home schooling because it's not too common here. I admire how you look after all of your children's needs. You even have them involved in dance and sport etc. I take my hat off to you Jamerrill you are a rare supermum. You handle all situations with a relaxed I can handle this way. Xx

  19. I love your work! Hope all is well? Can tell a lot is on your mind? Hope you have some time for yourself:) xox

  20. I only have two kids. We wanted more but my body canโ€™t handle pregnancy. I hemorrhage, the second one was way more dangerous than my first. I was told to think about it carefully before trying for a third. I wanted to live for the two we have. But itโ€™s sooo hard! Summer is a blessing but itโ€™s non stop! I always feel I do things wrong or not good enough! I have been following you since before I was a mom… and I love watching how you handle your large family! Even tho we are just 4 it gives me good tips and strategies and helps me understand I donโ€™t have to be perfect. I donโ€™t have to do it all at once! And that if I canโ€™t get to it when I wanted itโ€™s ok! And yet you bust out these great meals, good fun for your babies and you manage it all! And it helps me tons!! Love from Chicago!!

  21. Pork Ragu looks yummy! I noticed you cooked it in a Dutch oven. Are they a pain to take care of? I'm considering getting one, but not totally sure how often I'd use it.

  22. Save the pineapple cores grind them up good. Use them in smoothies they contain lots of Bromeline.

  23. Happy blessed birthday Gabe ๐ŸŽ‚. Another great video. I got a pineapple cutter to. But our local Aldi's didn't have it so I spent 7 bucks for mine at the local Kroger's. Take care and have a blessed day.

  24. Dreamfiels sells their pasta by the case on their website. Maybe a case or 2 would work for you? I can only find it at Walmart and never shop there anymore.

  25. Looking forward to the sheet pan and yogurt videos. I got both an instapot and an air fryer for Christmas and the instant pot isnt getting enough use. I'd love more instapot recipes-ideas or maybe add some links to the yogurt videos if you did videos already and I forgot.

  26. I am a fairly recent subscriber! I sincerely hope that this video was not made due to subscriber's accusing you of only feeding PB & J sandwiches to your kiddos.
    First of all, you are an amazing woman and an even more amazing momma!!!!! Ladies, I already know she will run circles around us & look at the amazing meals she feeds her family!!
    God is seriously so proud of you & so am I!! I hope to keep learning many things from you, even though I only have one child. I am a single mommy and put even more pressure on myself to do my very best. One way to do that is by learning some things from you!!!! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—

  27. You need to purchase a ( Halo) charger. It's fantastic. We have one. ( Halo) charger is portable
    Can plug in anything with regular plug during power outage. And also can plug in cell phone too. ( QVC) sells ( Halo). Ours also has a jumper cables system for charging automobiles when need charge too. A brilliant device. Very portable. About the size of a VHS Tape. ๐Ÿ’œ Love Tamson ๐Ÿ˜‡

  28. Jammerrill,
    What a Fantastic Mom; along with a Great Dad. God Bless your whole Family. Teamwork shows through and through with every task that is done.
    I bet a container Vegetable Garden would look beautiful on
    your deck. What a neat Science
    Class that would be. My parents years ago did a vegetable container garden using (5) gallon buckets. They had a wonderful abundance of vegetables from the garden. Didn't have to worry about weeds. And added natural fertilizer mixed with soil to each container as they planted. Then they mulched very well to help keep moisture in bucket. Just had to make sure they drilled holes in bottom of bucket for drainage first before planting. They planted tomatoes for container planting, peppers, cucumbers, spring onions and lettuce. They also planted herbs too.
    Love Tamson ๐Ÿ˜‡ ๐Ÿ’–

  29. I knew I should of bought the pineapple slicer when I was at aldi. Hopefully they have some left when I go back.

  30. I'm just in love with every video you post. You make me want to be a better mother, friend and fellow Christian. Thank you for sharing your life and family!

  31. Upstairs purging and kid room organization, ugh, it's on my agenda and will quite probably take all summer… hoping to dive in like I mean it this next week! Might even get a video made… but might not ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

  32. I have to get a pineapple slicer , we do not have an Aldi here where I live, I have shopped there before and I love it !!

  33. I just love your channel! You are such an inspiration!!! We have 5 kids and our 6th will be here in just a couple of weeks so I appreciate all the help!Thank you so so much for sharing your meals and ideas.

  34. Happy 10th Birthday Gabriel!! Before we went on vacation last week I needed to do something with the turkey that was going to expire while we were gone so I decided to make up some freezer turkey sandwiches for the first time! I may pull one out and see if my daughter likes it for lunch tomorrow!

  35. I just love how real your videos are โค you are so relatable. We are only a family of 5 but I get so many meal ideas from you. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. You are SO hilarious ๐Ÿ˜‚ that hat is too stylish! ๐Ÿ˜ the kiddos are so cute ๐Ÿ˜Š your meals look sooo good im gonna have to make me some especially those breads! Think ima go ahead and go to the thrift store and get me a bread maker ๐Ÿ˜€

  37. You need another power source when your power goes out girl! If not a generator one of those little power packs. You can use it to jump start a bus or charge your phone. I'm sure there is something out there that could run your crock pot. Blessings on you and yours as you bless so many of us.

  38. My Walmart doesnโ€™t have freezer sandwich bags. Walmart does have double zip bags. Would those work for freezer pb&jโ€™s?? They are regular sandwich bags not freezer. Thanks in advance hun! ๐Ÿฅฐ

  39. You need a ju ju be BFF bag or something similar to carry kids clothes for when you go out but you look like you home school and donโ€™t live the on the run school mom life lol itโ€™s even harder I have to drive my son to the school bus at 8 am! But still if you go out a lot and Iโ€™m not sure that you do a bag like that would help

  40. Iโ€™m addicted to your videos! I have a hubby and no kids but I still find your tips helpful as we both work FIFO and I like to make sure he has decent meals when Iโ€™m away

  41. Question…How many children are you blessed with? ย What does your husband do for a living? You are so organized with your delicious meals. I'm so happy and impressed that your frozen meals are very healthy and delicious. Keep up the good work, Jamerrill. You teach me a lot….Thanks

  42. So glad i came across your videos! Not just for food prep ideas. But your personality seems so positive and happy i love watching your videos!

  43. That would be such a great hat to wear outside to protect your skin from the sun. But …. why inside? Are you just modeling it for the camera, or do your often wear beach hats indoors?? Nothing snarky, just curious!

  44. Since Iโ€™m new to your channel. Your older videos come up. I just wanna say I love the fact that you always look beautiful & for a family of 10, your home is really clean! You do a wonderful job & should be proud โ™ฅ๏ธ

  45. Hi mama Jamerrill, I must say that I'm not in a large family, I'm a nurse student and I found your videos very helpfull to me, you give me extra ideas to meals and I'm addicted for your videos. I make a list of meals, I prep them and cook them in 1 day so I have food ready for the week, it's so much easier….thank you sooooo much for helpin' me. You've another subs, but this time is one from Brazil. Lots of love from me to you and your family!!! xoxo

  46. I'm 28 and never eaten a peanut butter and jelly sandwich nut I live in uk so is jelly in us our jam in uk

  47. Holy crap that's a good idea.. I have a smaller family but it's just me against three of them.. I go to school full time and breastfeed so these preprepared big meals are awesome

  48. I really wished I had the energy of your children. To wake up and start jumping on trampoline would be amazing. However in my old age it takes me a minute just to get up and brush my teeth LOL.
