Pennywise Platter Thursday 8/26

pennywiseplatter3
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 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!

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.

Amy @ Delicious by Nature

Beans are my pennywise trick! This past week I made a big batch of indian spiced lentils that were super nutritious and fed us all week.

Salmon Casserole en Croûte

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..

Nurturing Wisdom

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.

I love beautiful and simple food that is nourishing to the body and the soul. I wrote Fresh: Nourishing Salads for All Seasons and Ladled: Nourishing Soups for All Seasons as another outlet of sharing this love of mine. I also love sharing practical tips on how to make a real food diet work on a real life budget. Find me online elsewhere by clicking on the icons below!

    Is there anyway you could change that plate of food that looks like worms? I hate seeing it every time I come to your site. I know it is supposed to be pasta, don’t you ever look at it? It looks awful…. I keep waiting for it to change but it doesn’t.

  4. KimiHarris says

    Micki,

    Actually, I totally disagree. We’ve always thought it looked like slugs, hardly like worms!

    And yes, it actually is pasta. 🙂 Pasta whose shape didn’t quite go as planned. I will change the picture at some point, sorry you hate it so much.

    Nothing like a little honesty, eh? *chuckles*

    Sorry, I am just having the worst time right now, I almost cut off my finger, yikes…..don’t have a job, can’t pay my truck payment, credit card payment…trying to pay it down and not using it, and when I saw those slugs I just had to say something. You did make me laugh saying it looked like slugs instead of worms, i’m laughing still. Thank you….
