– Happy day, friends.
The family is in the van ready to go.
I am in this kitchen, look at this, look.
Look, real life.
We’re gettin’ ready to
go for many, many hours
over the river, through
the woods to church we go.
I’ve gotta, we’ve just
gotta do stuff after church.
You know how things add up,
especially when you have to
drive as far as we do to
go anywhere or do anything.
So we’ve got quite a list.
All that to say I am
going to share with you
three nights of super
easy, slow cooker meals.
All of my recipes are
always large family style.
So that means if you are a larger family
like my family is, you
should have enough for dinner
and maybe even some
leftovers for tomorrow.
If you are a smaller
family, we’ll say two,
four, sixish size, my larger recipes
should definitely be
enough for two dinners
and maybe some leftovers after that
and I don’t know about you
but I’m the leftover queen
and I love reusing my leftovers.
So tonight, we’re going to do
an easy sausage baked ziti.
Tomorrow night, we’re
going to do chicken gravy
over rice and then the third night,
we are gonna do a kielbasa
and potato slow cooker meal.
So, so many good things coming up
but let’s get this baked ziti going now.
Just a kid running in
from the van, no big deal.
How do you like my baby?
Maybe this will be baby number nine.
Today’s video is sponsored by Panda Pop.
Jamerrill, why are you playing Panda Pop?
When you download this
game, you’re gonna see.
It’s a mama Panda and
every level is this mama
fightin’ for her babies and
saving her babies and I like it.
It’s a lot of fun.
You can download Panda Pop for free.
Just use the link down
in the description below
and you can play with me.
So go ahead and click
that link and we’ll play
some Panda Pop.
Okay, so for this easy
slow cooker baked ziti,
the first thing you need to do
is get three pounds of meat,
preferably meat that already
has about a tablespoon
of minced garlic and a sliced onion.
Ya cook that up and ya drain
it but here’s what I did.
I’ll tell you what you
should do, what you could do,
and then I’ll show you what I did, okay?
Last night, I cooked six pounds of sausage
in the slow cooker overnight.
I used three pounds of
that to do egg, sausage,
and cheese bakes this morning.
I did one for breakfast this morning,
one is cooked ahead for
breakfast tomorrow morning.
Then, I have just taken
the other six pounds.
I’ve broken it up.
You’re gonna see it in my slow cooker.
You don’t have to use sausage.
Those of you who would like,
you can use ground turkey.
You can use ground beef.
You can use meat from Wal-Mart.
You can use grass-fed meat.
Whatever you have available,
that’s what you use.
So here is my three pounds
of pre-cooked sausage
already broken up.
Now we’re going to add in
the spices and the different
tomato sauces.
Also, there’s a couple
different ways you can do this.
You can add some ricotta cheese to this.
I don’t have any ricotta but I have,
this is probably about a
fourth of a cup of feta.
So I’m gonna add some feta
crumbles to this baked ziti.
Just a reminder that, if I miss
saying anything ’cause I do,
then look at the recipe
on largefamilytable.com.
So, there are of course, tons
of slow cooker baked ziti
recipes out there.
A lot of em call for
spaghetti sauce, pasta sauce.
We’re doing a little bit of a version of
a homemade spaghetti sauce
because I don’t have any,
of course, how it goes.
But with the canned tomato
sauce that we’re using
and then all the herbs and
spices that are going into this,
we’re doing the same of
making spaghetti sauce.
Two tablespoons of minced garlic.
So I’m doing this baked ziti on low.
It’ll be on low for about
seven to eight hours.
Then when we get home, I will
need to add in the dry noodles
for about the last 30 minutes,
but it’ll be dinner for us.
It’ll be ready to go.
I would have chopped an
onion and let it cook
overnight with the sausage, didn’t do it.
So I’m doing a tablespoon of minced onion
because I have it.
Now I’m going to do a tablespoon of basil.
Then we’re going to do
a tablespoon of oregano.
Oh, let me show you my nice
little shelf organizer I got.
So, you all have seen in my cabinets,
you’ve seen the messes, but look!
I got this nice little organizer.
Makes my heart happy.
So now I’ll put in a teaspoon of salt
and a teaspoon of pepper.
These are the tomato sauces
I had got marked down
at Sharp Shopper and they
were two for a dollar.
Then they were three for a dollar.
So, I have a couple cases of em.
So I wanna use em up.
So I am using two 15 ounce
cans of tomato sauce.
Then, I am using two 28 ounce cans.
These are organic petit diced tomatoes.
Again, got em marked
down at Sharp Shopper.
Got a whole case of these as well.
Want to use them up.
Going to use two cans of these.
Also, spice wise, I’m going
to do a tablespoon of parsley
and a tablespoon of garlic powder.
Then we’ll mix all this
up here in a minute.
Because we need to do
dishes, I think this came
in our little fry daddy or something,
a million years ago.
Don’t even have it anymore.
I’m gonna also go ahead
and dump in the feta.
We will, of course, put
more cheese on it later.
So now we’re gonna do four cups of water.
Thank you, Amelia, for your service.
Not that is that and it’s going
to just cook on low all day.
We’ll check it out again later tonight.
Okay so, we went to
church, we did our things.
We had a lunch out with some more family.
Came home, took a nap, went on a big hike.
That’s why I got my
#JamerillsFunkySummerHat on.
I did not wanna put the
noodles in the slow cooker
while I went on my hike
’cause it takes over an hour.
So now I’m gonna dump these noodles in,
leave em in for just about 30 minutes
and it should be perfect.
My slow cooker is extra
bubbly ’cause it’s like,
“Woo Jamerrill, you’ve left
me on low a long time.”
Now we’ll pour these noodles in.
This is one 16-ounce box of ziti.
We got another box going in
and then I’m gonna stir em up.
You know I like to push it.
Doesn’t that smell yummy?
– [Child] Yep.
– So, this baked ziti has to
sit here with the lid on it
for about 30 minutes.
So I’m gonna play a little Panda Pop.
Okay, this is how far I am.
This is the level I’m on.
So I’m gonna click that.
– [Child] You’ve played this?
– [Jamerrill] I have been playing!
Amelia’s like, “What, you’ve played it?”
I have been playing this.
When I had my break day the other day,
I sat there and played some Panda Pop.
So I’m going on all these little roads.
I love it because watch what I’m gonna do.
I’m the mommy Panda and
I’m gonna save my babies.
You’ll see what the little babies do.
See, they parachute down.
– [Amelia] Oh yeah!
– Isn’t that cute?
Okay so then, we don’t
wanna hit the mines.
It’s a new level.
I haven’t had the metal balls before.
But I think they don’t break.
I have the game.
My kids are so amazed.
I have this game and I’ve been playing it.
I think I’m on level 11 or something now.
This mommy panda is saving all her babies.
See, they parachute down, isn’t that cute?
– [Amelia] She has a lot.
– It says baby saved.
She does have a lot.
Does she remind you of your mama?
Look, babies saved, yay!
You can look down in the description below
and click my link to get Panda
Pop for free on your phone
and even play with me.
There we go, there’s one baby.
We’ve gotta get 20 babies.
We got 18, 19, 20 of our babies, yay!
Oh, she’s so happy and
her little children say,
“Where’s our baked ziti, Mommy?”
OK guys, so I just took
the lid off to check on it.
It was perfect, I added two
cups of shredded cheese.
The noodles are perfect, the
cheese, I put the cheese in,
shut the lid for ya know, like a minute,
and it was just fine but there we go.
Easy baked ziti in the slow cooker.
We are back going to Costco
to load up on all the things.
We want dinner ready for when we get home.
So another easy slow cooker
meal that is a family favorite
is this chicken broccoli alfredo.
Gonna dump a bunch of
chicken in the slow cooker.
I’m gonna put in a block of cream cheese.
I’m gonna put in some
heavy whipping cream today
and some butter.
I know that’s a whole lot of fats.
This is low carb, a trend
healthy mama-esque meal.
It would also be keto friendly.
Is your Panda Pop bear dancing?
And when we get home later tonight,
I will add in a whole bunch of broccoli.
I will do some steamed
brown rice for the kiddos.
If you are doing this at
home and keeping it more
low carb, you could do it
over those zucchini noodles
or over spaghetti squash.
And then you could also do
it with whole wheat noodles
for the kiddos or whoever
would like it that way.
So let’s get this all
dumped in the slow cooker
and let’s head on out.
(light music)
All right, so now we’re
going out shopping.
The slow cooker is on low.
See ya in eight hours, slow cooker,
and we’ll finish this up.
(light music)
So we are back from our Costoing today,
back from all of our running around.
When we got home, I did a few things.
I got some rice in this instant
pop so that we could have
this chicken broccoli alfredo over it
and I added the broccoli in.
Also, I was out of sour cream this morning
whenever I left, so I added
in a cup of sour cream.
So whenever I added
broccoli to the slow cooker,
you notice I did not put
broccoli in this this morning.
I put the full 52-ounce bag
of broccoli in the slow cooker
about 30 minutes ago and I just recently
turned the power off,
unplugged it, all of that.
So, here we go, here is how it looks.
I’ll have this recipe linked
in the description below
but I did brown rice in the instant pot.
No brainer.
And I had got some of these
already ready to go zoodles,
zucchini noodles, at Costco tonight.
So, I cooked those up for myself.
So now, we’ll serve this out.
So, this is Zion’s plate.
He’s 16.
We got carrots, cotton candy grapes
and the chicken broccoli
alfredo over brown rice.
And here’s Gabriel’s plate.
Liam’s plate, he also
wanted carrots and dip.
Here’s Benjamin’s plate and then Daniel’s.
He did not want any rice or grapes.
So he’s got carrots and just
the chicken broccoli alfredo.
Okay friends, so the
sink is full of dishes
but that bag right there, it
is packed to go to the lake.
That is right.
100 other things we could do but instead,
let’s just go to the lake.
We’ve had a ton of rain,
we’ve missed our lake days recently.
I don’t wanna miss no more.
So we’re gonna hit it.
Before we head over the
river and through the woods
to the mountain lake we go,
I am going to get a sausage
and potato quick and easy
meal in the slow cooker
and I’m gonna show ya right
now what I’m throwing together.
So I have a five pound bag of potatoes.
What I am going to do is
just put whole potatoes
in the slow cooker.
This is gonna cook on low.
You can of course do this recipe on high,
but I’m gonna be gone, it’ll
be at least eight hours
before I get back to touch
that slow cooker again.
So I’m gonna put whole
potatoes in the slow cooker.
I am going to chop my onion
and some peppers real quick
and we’re just gonna
lay the kielbasa on top
and then we’re gonna also put some oil in,
put some quick spices in too.
So I just put the equivalent
of about two tablespoons
of oil on the bottom of my slow cooker.
With the potatoes, as I
mentioned, we are just putting
whole potatoes (squeal).
Woo, baby’s squealing,
he’s running behind me.
Whole potatoes in the slow cooker.
I do put cut potatoes in the slow cooker,
but not for when it’s gonna be this long.
You do run the risk, of
course, of your potatoes
turning all black and we don’t want that.
But whole potatoes cook perfectly.
No problems whatsoever, so there you go.
Five pounds of potatoes.
This is my seven or
eight quart slow cooker.
Now we’re gonna do the
kielbasa and cram a bunch of
onions and peppers on top.
Shake some spices around,
let it bake all day.
Don’t forget, download
Panda Pop today for free.
Go ahead and use my link
in the description box
and start playing with me.
It’ll be lots of fun.
We’re gonna save all
the little panda babies.
(light music)
Okay, so now that all that is
chopped in the slow cooker,
it is going on.
I’m gonna give you a quick look at it.
Okay, so here we are.
There’s the slow cooker, got it on low.
I went ahead and sliced down the kielbasa.
So, in this slow cookin’
bad boy, we have five pounds
of red potatoes, almost three
pounds of pre-cooked kielbasa,
one large onion, three colored peppers.
I also put in basil,
oregano, some minced onion
because I had it even though
we had that other onion.
Let’s just have all the
onions and then also,
just a little bit of rosemary.
So there ya go, it’s
all in there in layers.
Slow cooker lid on.
Dinner will be done now when
we’re back from the lake.
Okay, so we are back from the lake.
Dinner is done.
I’m gonna show you what this looks like.
Okay, so, here we go.
We take the lid off.
There’s all the kielbasa that have cooked
all day on low and the potatoes are done.
And under this layer of kielbasa,
there are, of course,
we’ve got all the spices.
We have peppers, we have onion.
It’s all in there.
So you can do this a
couple different ways.
I’m going to just work
with this and serve it
outta the slow cooker.
Here is Liam’s plate.
Here is Amelia’s plate.
It’s a small place but it’s
one medium baked potato
and about half a hot dog
worth there of the kielbasa
and she’s got ketchup to dip.
Unless anyone thinks we’re
lacking on fruit and veggies
with dinner, we’ve got the
big thing of blueberries out.
We just got baths and stuff
from the lake, didn’t we?
And then we have some
raspberries we’re finishing up
from Coastco and then, of
course, big dinner plates.
There you go.
Outta the five pound bag of potatoes,
we have five left and a little,
just a few of these peppers,
onions and kielbasa.
So, there may be a few who
want a second small potato.
I’m going to eat what’s left
of the kielbasa and the peppers
and there ya go, that’s that.
Also, our friends at Panda

Go to Pandapop.me/Jamerrill.
I love this game because
it is fun and engaging
and who doesn’t love a mama panda
trying to save her baby pandas.
Now, I will admit as I have
progressed in Panda Pop,
there are some levels where
the mama panda ends up cryin’
and she doesn’t save all
her babies and it’s sad.
So we just have to keep
on progressing in the game
and save all the babies each time.
What I do on those levels
that I struggle with,
I just keep starting them over.
So, on this evening in
particular, I was worn out,
mama tired, how most mamas are at night
and I got my shower and my pajamas on
and Travis and some of
the kids were watching
The World’s Strongest
Man Competition because
that’s just a big one at our house, haha.
And I was relaxing with
my feet up and enjoying
playing Panda Pop.
And I appreciate Panda Pop
for being such a fun, free,
and easily accessible game on my phone.
I actually don’t have any
other games on my phone
except Panda Pop and
helping this mama panda
join over 110 million Panda Pop players

bubble shooter game.
Panda Pop is the perfect game for you

See how my dishwasher
is in like two pieces?
We bought that new dishwasher.
I think I even showed
it or I’m gonna show it.
A few days ago, we bought it.
The brand new dishwasher box
is sitting in the garage.
I think tomorrow, I
think tomorrow is the day
it’s going to be amazing.
The old funk dishwasher
is gettin’ out of here.
We literally take it
apart like puzzle pieces.
It’s so ridiculous.
Brand new dishwasher’s going in.
Super excited, so be sure
