Today, for Pennywise Platter I wanted to highlight three of the great posts from last week. First, at Kitchen Stewerdship, Katie shares food for thought about the energy we use in the kitchen. And then there are two super easy recipes that are frugal too! Homemade Peach Preserves (yes, a very simple recipe) and Homemade Kefir Pops (I’ve made something like this before and they are very delish!).
What do you have to share today?

Kimi @ The Nourishing Gourmet Oatmeal Challenge Results
This week, I shared the results of a week of eating oatmeal for breakfast. (Such a money and time saver! ). Food is essential, and this makes my job of cooking us nourishing food easier to accomplish!
Katie @ Kitchen Stewardship
After two attempts, I’ve finally found the trick – two tricks, actually – to making both canned and lacto-fermented pickles that are crunchy, not mushy. Luckily my one-year-old likes the mushy ones, but if you don’t have a toothless pickle-lover in your house, check out the crunchy pickle post!
Rebuild from Depression BlogHomemade baby food, another great way to preserve the taste of summer…
Babies are precious and all the more so when they reinforce your own values by eating vigorously anything that comes out of your home garden. Baby Alastair is eight months old and eating us out of nectarines and vegetables…….
Emily @ Life in Cincinnati Cheese & Zucchini Frittata This week, I have a frugal, vegetarian frittata recipe that works great as a breakfast, lunch or dinner. It can easily be adapted to use whatever veggies you have on hand.
Cara @ Health Home and Happiness
To keep my food spending under control, I go through every once in a while and see how much individual meals or items cost us. This week I broke down the organic chicken I use for lunch meat into price per ounce and was pleasantly surprised at how much I save by not buying pre-packaged additive free organic lunch meat.

Salmon casserole has been a favorite in my family for some years now. Here’s a simple, frugal version that doesn’t skimp on flavor..
Salmon Japonais, a succulent piece of salmon bathed in a light, sweet sauce with a touch of curry nestled on thinly sliced potatoes that melted like butter. The smoothness of of the flavors all meld together until the last chew, a gentle kick from the curry…And then the refreshing coolness from the orange slices that garnished the dish.
