Jill's soup exceeds my sodium limit: cheese (from restaurant cheese dip packets?), canned green beans, and canned cream-of-whatever soup. It's probably too much salt for Shrek too, but time will tell. 

 

Its probably cream of potato soup with some canned potatoes thrown in. I just can't imagine her taking the time to make it from scratch.

What you are describing bears zero resemblance to what's in Jill's pot.  Hers looks like a big pot of starch with a bit of cheese.  It will make her kids feel full without actually nourishing them.  

Jill’s soup is nothing like the potato soup I make.  Her soup is thin and watery.  My soup is thick and has good-sized chunks of potatoes in it.  I’ve never seen potato soup that watery before.  I have a feeling that Jill sucks as a cook; therefore, her daughters probably won’t be good cooks either, unless their mother-in-laws can work some magic and teach them to cook.

Totally agree.  She is so pretty, but those eyebrows are a huge distraction.

Of course it doesn't. My mom would throw in onions, carrots, potatoes, corn (on the cob), plantains, parsnips when she made chicken soup. When she made lentil or bean soup, she would have ham & sausage, along several veggies too. I doubt Jill has very many veggies in that soup besides potatoes. It looks like she probably threw in some canned green beans. 

What are plantains like?  I've never tried them.

I love split pea soup with crispy bacon added.  

Maybe this soup is one of the healthiest things they eat?  but it looks very thin.

Plantains are similar to bananas.

It depends on the plantain. I took this from google for an explanation

As the plantain ripens, it becomes sweeter and its color changes from green to yellow to black, just like bananas. Green plantains are firm and starchy and resemble potatoes in flavor. Yellow plantains are softer and starchy yet sweet. Extremely ripe plantains have softer, deep yellow pulp that is much sweeter.

I'm not a huge fan of the sweet ones. I prefer green ones. Its hard to say what they taste like but I always thought it was apart from bananas. My favorite way to eat the green are tostones. Just thinking about them makes me salivate.

In El Salvador, they fry up yellow plantains, sprinkle a little cinnamon on them and have them for breakfast.  Very tasty, and, as noted elsewhere, a distinct similarity in texture and flavor to bananas.

Soup is a course, not a complete meal.  Where's the bread, or salad, or just something else to actually fill those kids???

Soup can absolutely be a complete meal, especially if it's something filling like broccoli-cheese. I usually just have a bowl of soup -- you're saying I should have the maid bring me more courses even if I'm full?

A couple of people are asking JRod for the cheesy potato slop, I mean, soup recipe.  She told them that she rarely uses recipes, (just a little of this and a little of that) but she thinks that she should write a recipe book some day.  Her ego truly has no bounds.

Um... if she doesn't use recipes, what on earth is she going to put in her "recipe book?"

Do tell...so maybe Jilly’s “pink drink” is actually powdered drink mix...OR she actually drinks the crap herself and gives the Rodlets the lemonade and tells them it’s Plexus.  They don’t know the difference and it’s good grooming for future Plexus customers/suckers.

Jill - "my favorite part of the day, take pics for the gram of the full bowls of soup Renee made. (sorry, I don't know/can't share her recipe) Then pics of all our children praying it will be enough for everyone and no one will feel a need to fast so a sibling can have more cheesy glop. There will be no pictures of anyone actually eating, because you can see the evidence we feed our children by the bowls of uneaten soup that was prayed over."

Me neither.  I also don't think life among the Amish is quite the peaceful, pastoral experience that Jill likes to pretend it is.   I know quite a few people who've lived in close proximity to Amish settlements and there are a lot of drawbacks.  Amongst them is driving 5 mph behind an Amish buggy for 10 miles or more on a main road.  Loses its charm real quick.  As does the amount of teenage hi-jinks one experiences when living around Amish teen boys who are essentially allowed to run wild drinking and driving and otherwise creating havoc until they get baptized at 18.  A friend had an unlicensed  drunken Amish teen plow into her car not once, but twice.  Different Amish kids, different occasions; not fun at all.

  I don't see her giving up any of the vehicles they've grifted for a horse and buggy.  Nor do I see any Amish suckers out there who'd be impressed with JRod et famille enough to donate it to them.  Poor horses would starve anyway.

Ah yes, comma love from the Rodrigues Academy Homeschool! Cheesy, potato soup = cheesy and potato soup. 

The creases and shine are probably due to plastic cheese product and the cornstarch in the many cans of cheap condensed soup used to make the glop. 

Maybe Jill will make her famous burnt mini ham for Easter this year. It's a Rodrigues holiday classic designed to feed two people and a Hulk while eleven others sit and watch them try to chew it.

It probably is from cheese packets that they got a CEC. It might be quick filling but just how much is in it? Does it last? Heck, I had a cauliflower crust veggie pizza (fresh from a take and go place) last night and I couldn't finish it. It kept me full all night.

OMG. Corsages! There's so much tacky insanity on display that it took me awhile to notice that. Who. The. Hell. even wears corsages? And who. the. hell. wears one when speaking at a conference? That is so - 1930's? 1950's? 

I don't have words. Is this something that religious people do at women's conferences?

I vaguely remember when I was a teen, if you went to prom or something your date brought you a corsage in a plastic box from the floral shop and your mom pinned it on your dress or you wore it on your wrist. It had real, not fake, flowers, and I always thought they were really stupid and why waste nice flowers on them instead of a nice bouquet in a vase. I think there were really gaudy versions with chrysanthemums and long flowing ribbons and cowbells and words in glitter and shit that were worn by girls at homecoming, which were extra stupid.

Corsages. Fake corsages. SMH.

One of the funniest threads that I ever read on twop was about homecoming pom poms. The discussion somehow took over The Newlyweds: nick and jessica thread. I'm from an area that didn't have such things and the absurdity of the gaudy garlands made me LOL.

I have to wonder what happened to cause Jill to post a video specifically showing the pot/bowls full of soup and basket full of bread.  Has she been reading this forum or another one like it?  Did she overhear someone talking about how skinny the children are?  Did CPS pay the Rods another visit?  I’ve got a feeling that the video was made because someone somewhere complained about Ma and Pa Rod not feeding their children.

I do think if Jill were not bound by the misogynistic restraints of her stupid cult, she would be making a living as a preacher. Her social media rants and ghost authored sermons and posts written for her male children lead me to believe that if given the opportunity, she would love to be a younger Paula White. Not to mention her vanity, fame whorish-ness, and love of grifting. She’d probably be pretty successful at it if given the chance.
