45 ORGANIZED LARGE FAMILY FREEZER MEALS IN 7 HOURS! Freezer Cooking Day // Jamerrill Stewart

November 4, 2019 100 By William Morgan


– Well friends I am back
with another large family
freezer cooking day but
today, extra exciting,
I am cooking, I just came out with these,
if you don’t know yet,
I came out with these
large family freezer meal packs.
I have pack one, two and three out.
Today I am cooking all
of pack two and I’m gonna
share that process with you.
Here is the pack that we’re doing today.
I am just gonna show you
guys how it works on my phone
’cause I don’t even have it
printed out but it’s just
downloaded and I can use it from here.
And of course we’re scrolling
through the large family
freezer cooking guide
and the table of contents
and the freezer cooking tips.
This is the grocery list.
I used this the other night.
I’ll pop a card up here also
for my last large family
grocery haul but this is
the big batch freezer meal
shopping list I used to
get all the groceries
for this freezer cooking
day and I had all of my
groceries ordered in less than 15 minutes
and everything I’m making
today for these super mega
meals came in just under 350 dollars.
That will be for up to 40
meals for our family of 10
that we will use over the
next four to eight weeks,
depending on how life rolls.
This is a super helpful
feature of the pack,
the big batch freezer
meal cooking prep guide.
So what this does is let
me know at a glance what
I need to do to jump in and
start making these meals.
So I need to cook eight and
a half pounds of ground beef,
I need to cook and shred
about nine pounds of chicken,
I need to chop onions, green
peppers, get the rice cooked
and dice the ham so that’s what we’re
gonna jump on right now.
We’re gonna do my taco bake freezer meal,
the chicken broccoli alfredo freezer meal,
we’re gonna do a bunch of tuna cakes,
several meatloafs, we’re
gonna do garlic lemon chicken
for the slow cooker, you
can also pop that in your
Instant Pot, we’re gonna do
ham and cheese potato bakes,
chicken teriyaki, beef
stroganoff, baked ziti
and chicken tater tot casserole.
Ready, set, go!
Now I’ve got ground beef
going in this pressure cooker
and then I’ve got chicken
going in this pressure cooker.
All the meals total, it
calls for 11 cups of rice
to be cooked so I’m gonna do
that the old fashioned way
and actually do that on
the stove top in a pot.
Now this will be my silly
blooper, this is me attempting
to do my green pepper
slices in my food processor.
I don’t know why guys,
I had it on, let’s see,
what setting, I tried the
slicing and I did shredding
and instead it pureed, so
don’t puree your four green
peppers but I have pureed
my green peppers today
so I kinda gave up and just cut my onions
the old fashioned way.
The ground beef and the
chicken are cooking right now.
The onions are chopped.
The green peppers are
murderized, the rice is cooking
and the ham is almost done being diced.
So several of these recipes
rely on meat that is being
cooked now so I am going
to do some of these raw
recipes, I could do the
tuna cakes to but I was
kinda thinking I would just jump in
and get the meatloaves done.
I have that ground beef all
ready to go so I’m gonna
need the six pounds of
ground beef, six eggs,
six cups of old fashioned
oats, some mixed veggies
and those mixed veggies
are like whatever veggies
I have rolling around that I
wanna shove into a meatloaf.
Garlic powder, onion powder,
parsley and salt and pepper
to taste so I’ll be doing
these and then I will
put them in freezer bags
and get them freezing
for quick slow cooker meals
on days when we need them.
Like this week coming up,
we are having two days
at the lake, both nights,
it’ll be great to come home
to something that’s already
made and ready to go.
So in the freezer meal
pack, I said to use two
one pound packs total so two
pounds of mixed vegetables,
this comes from a lot of
times I will have mushrooms
or carrots I can shred or other components
hanging around that need to be used up
and like I mentioned, I’ve
always shoved it in my meatloaf
however, I have these
vegetables chopped for other
recipes and I don’t have extra
ones hanging out right now
that need to be used up
so, I had this bag of
mixed vegetables from
Sharp Shopper and all it is
is sliced onions and green peppers, yay,
forgot I had it and I’m sure
you have stuff hanging out
in your freezers that
would be helpful for your
freezer cooking too.
Anyway, this happens to be a two pound bag
so I’ going to use this in the meatloaf.
Here is the meatloaf all mixed up.
I’m gonna start making
this into loaves now.
Now the recipe called for
six pounds of ground beef,
the packs of ground beef that I had,
that was like 97 percent lean or whatever,
they were 2.25 pound packs so
that means this is actually
almost seven pounds and
I think with that little
bit of extra meat, I might be able to make
three meatloaves out of this.
Three meatloaves for the
freezer and I guess doing
the math on this, this
would make each of these
about two and a quarter
pound each so again,
for my family, I would at this
point just do one of these
for dinner, however, that
would be if we had heavy
side dishes to go along with it.
So next up, here’s the tuna
cakes freezer meal I’m gonna do.
It takes 24 five ounce cans
of tuna so I’m gonna get those
in my big ole bowl.
Four cups of oatmeal, pouring it in.
Here are all the ingredients
for the tuna cakes
and now I’m gonna make these into patties.
So here’s how the tuna cakes are looking.
I’m gonna take these out,
I should be able to get
about four to five dozen, I’ve made these
on the Stuart size side of the scale.
We love tuna cakes around
here though so I’ve got one
more pan, I’m gonna get
these in the freezer.
So I wanted to check
in with my white board.
I know I have been following
my large family freezer
meals plan on my phone but
also just being a visual
person, so what I went
ahead and did earlier
was I wrote the meals
down that we’re doing
so I can still cross that
off and then keep a tally
beside it with how many
we got done so we can
get the grand total at the end.
We got tuna cakes done, I got five dozen.
I got three meatloaves, got a
lot of other components done
so I’m gonna get these two done next.
The garlic and lemon chicken
and the chicken teriyaki
and then we’ll be able to
dive into these oven bakes.
So I have the ten pounds
of chicken distributed
amongst the four bags now
I’m gonna add in the garlic,
the lemon juice, the
olive oil and the spices.
I’ve been sharing some instastories to,
if you don’t follow me on
Instagram, be sure to do that,
the link will be in the
description below but anyway,
several of you have asked
where I got these holders
for these gallon bags for
freezer cooking so that link
will also be in the description below.
I got em on Amazon, I wanna say I got
like four for 12 dollars.
So I just sent out an email
to my email subscribers
that I’m gonna go live on
YouTube in a little more
than an hour, of course,
I’m super optimistic
and think I’m gonna
get all the things done
before I got live.
I do need like 10 minutes
or so before I go live
to actually you know, think
a few complete thoughts.
That’s always helpful but
by the time you see this
I would have already gone
live and I will be popping
a link up somewhere in
the air here or it’ll
be down in the description below.
What we have to do now
is this taco bake so I’m
gonna look at this recipe.
Okay I’ve got my ground
beef cooked, I’m gonna put
my ground beef and onions in a large bowl,
add the taco seasoning, add
the corn, the diced tomatoes,
black beans, mix well and then
we’re gonna start layering
so these are really easy to put together.
Here’s a whole bunch of
our components and yes,
it does take a lot of
sour cream because you add
sour cream with each layer
and I’m doing four of these.
Now it’s just a matter of
mixing it all together.
I also added in two
packs of taco seasoning.
So here it is all mixed up and
so we’re gonna get our pans,
I’ll put a layer, well
actually we’re gonna do some
taco shells then we’ll do
a layer of the mixture,
we’ll do a layer of sour
cream, layer of cheese,
taco shells, mixture, sour cream, cheese,
on and on and on, I do
four pans like that.
Now we’re all set up I’m gonna
get going at this counter.
Here is the first taco bake,
doesn’t that look delicious?
You can see the layers
in there and now I will
show you guys my process for making it.
Okay so start to finish that
is how I did the second pan
of this taco bake freezer meal.
So I was able to get four pans done,
excuse my can trash there
but whipping you around
quickly, I’ve got a little
bit left, I’m going to do
this small little eight by
eight pan and I don’t know,
maybe we’ll whip this out
and use this for home shool
lunch one day or something
in the coming weeks.
But gonna do the small pan to
use up the last that’s left.
Alright so taco bake is
done, I actually got five out
of that so that is looking good.
I wanted to get some more
things done before I did
my YouTube live, it’s
just not gonna happen
so everything is ready
even the noodles, chicken,
broccoli, everything, chicken
broccoli alfredo is coming up
next, the ham and cheese bake,
beef stroganoff, baked ziti
and tater tot casserole.
It’s gonna be heavy assembly
time after this live video.
So even though I was
nervous, apparently I don’t
have too much of a problem live streaming
because I had to shut
myself up after 30 minutes,
it was like, Jamerrill,
end this live stream,
people are trying to go to bed, stop this
so yeah, I chatted, for a good 30 minutes
and again, the link will be up in the air
or down in the description
so now I’m gonna
get back to all this freezer
cooking and get this,
get this stuff done.
So you can see how this
is going, this is the big
ole pile of chicken broccoli alfredo,
gonna mix it all together,
we got our stroganoff there,
Zion’s gonna wrap those
for me and I’m re watching,
I’m listening to my live
stream to see how it all,
see how it all turned
out, it’s hard to know
when you’re there running
your mouth, how it’s going.
We got three pans of the
alfredo bake over here
and then walk with me
this way, we got another
large pan here and then
I had to break into
my other foil pans and
now I’m gonna work on that
ham and cheese bake and Zion is helping me
and going through labeling
these and wrapping em up.
This is the hash browns
I’m using this time for
the ham and cheese bake
which is oh so yummy.
So I’m going to use three of these bags.
Here is the big bowl of
the ham and potato bake
and so I’m gonna fill
the pans with it now.
So I’m in the garage,
I am not in my kitchen
making a bazillion freezer meals.
You see what happens.
My camera battery died.
I have three batteries for
this camera and my main
one died that was in the
camera and the other two
that were in my little
camera pouch weren’t charged
so it’s just like a big
vlogging error so I didn’t
get anymore of my actual
cooking that evening filmed.
Here we are, it’s probably
about four days later
and look I’m in the same
1970’s curtain shirt again,
just like I wore in the live video.
Anyway, so four days later,
I have the final counts
of the meals that I made.
I’m gonna show you how they
are in my freezer in a minute
and I have the price breakdowns so let’s
go to the trusty whiteboard.
Okay so trusty white board time.
I did clear my board and
write it so it’s fresh
for us all but final totals came in,
I made a total of 45 freezer meals.
We got five taco bakes, seven
chicken broccoli alfredos,
five dozen tuna cakes, three meatloaves,
four garlic and lemon chickens,
five ham and cheese bakes,
four chicken teriyaki,
five beef stroganoff,
five baked ziti and five
tater tot casseroles.
So that comes to 45 freezer meals.
Total for all of these
meals, I spent 348 dollars,
that was for the 45
meals, it breaks down to
seven dollars and 73 cents
per meal divided by 10
for my family of 10
because even Benjamin eats
all the food now, is 77
cents per person, per meal.
Of course, with these
meals we will add big salad
and other fruit or vegetables side items
but these are the main dishes.
And all of that was with my large family
freezer meals pack number two.
Also, now that last live stream that I did
on Saturday night was so fun.
We are gonna do another
live stream this week
so this Friday night on August 17th,
I’m going live again in my kitchen.
Saturday night won’t work out.
I know we joked about doing Saturday night
in Jamerrill’s kitchen
but that won’t work out
’cause I’m going to dinner
with my friends Saturday night.
Anyway, Friday night
this week in my kitchen,
going live again.
I’m not sure though of the
exact time because it’s
gonna depend on how my Friday goes.
So when this video comes
out, my little video schedule
in my head, that means this
video’s supposed to come out
Thursday, August 16th
so that means Friday,
tomorrow August 17th in the evening,
look for us going live
over here on YouTube.
Also under the YouTube and
under the community tab,
if you go to like my
homepage, hit community,
I have asked for freezer
cooking, grocery shopping,
any kind of food related
questions that you would
like to chat it up about
during the live stream,
leave me over there
because that’s where I’m
taking questions this go round.
So I will see you real soon,
like tomorrow with a live video.
Don’t forget now through
August 25th, you can get
large family freezer meals
pack one, two and three
marked down to 9.99 each
or you can get all three
in the best deal bundle for only 20 bucks.
I have made those because
so many of you have asked
me how to do freezer
cooking in an organized
and sane fashion and that’s
what I have created for you
so you can put more time into being momma
and less time into being in the kitchen.
I will see you tomorrow night, bye bye.
