We just got home from a very fun birthday party for a friend. I love celebrations! I love the food, the conversation, the laughter. It’s all good.
But through it all, I just about forgot about Pennywise Platter Thursday! As it is so late already, I will make this short.
Share your nourishing tips and recipes with us all! I am always so inspired by your contributions.

Kimi @ The Nourishing Gourmet Five Healthy and Frugal Meals (http://www.thenourishinggourmet.com/2009/07/five-frugal-and-healthy-meals.html) Today I share five meals that are healthy, easy and frugal. They also happen to be family standby’s so you know they’ve been “family approved”. Check them out!
Pennywise Platter Roundup
Katie @ Kitchen Stewardship
Can cooking at home use so much energy that is is cost-prohibitive? Find out how much you pay to run your stove and some encouragement to conserve energy to be both frugal and earth-friendly.
Shannon @ Nourishing Days Honey Sweetened Pickle Slices Today I share a recipe for canned honey sweetened pickle slices. They are delicious, reminiscent of bread & butter pickles, minus the sugar.
Diane-The WHOLE Gang
Today I am sharing my recipe for hand cut fries served with a tall burger stack and the second link is to the spicy mustard on the burger.
My pennywise tip is first, buy your proteins when they are on sale, freeze them and plan them on your menu. Next, make your own spicy mustard instead of spending lots of extra money on pre-made mustard’s that are most likely full of things you might not want to eat. You can leave out what you don’t want in there. But I always say, Good Food No Matter What!™ No matter what you leave out, it should always be good.
Emily @ Life in Cincinnati Sugar & Pectin Free Peach Preserves This is a delicious way to have fresh peaches year-round. The honey & stevia sweetened preserves freeze beautifully and are wonderful with everything from toast to ice cream to oatmeal!
In the comment section, Penny shares a great recipe for coconut muffins made out of homemade coconut flour! How frugal and cool is that?
My family loved this recipe for Honey Roasted Figs with Ice Cream. I found ice cream for a few bucks at Trader Joe’s. It’s not organic but it doesn’t contain any HFCS or other additives (except a little guar gum). We have figs on the trees here in California but you can often find them cheap at farmer’s markets. I got mine cheap at TJ’s.
Wardeh @ GNOWFGLINS Homemade Kefir Popsicles
My contribution this week is short and sweet, nourishing and frugal: kefir popsicles. They delight (and nourish) young and old!
Ren @ Edible Aria Homemade Smoked Chili Powder and Chili Paste, Part 1
I got tired of paying outrageous prices for tiny jars of gourmet spice blends that are of dubious heritage and mediocre flavor, so today I’m roasting and grinding my own spicy, good-for-the-heart mixture. Next, I’ll take half of this custom grind and stir in orange juice and vinegar for a paste to use in soups, stews and bean dishes..
