Pennywise Platter Thursday 1/21/10


Welcome back to another round of Pennywise Platter Thursday! I’ve decided go back to my old habit of highlighting a post from last week from one of you. I love being able to highlight one of your great posts one more time (even if it is hard to choose one to share). Today I wanted to highlight ElizabethG’s Moroccan Chicken Stew. The reason? It made my mouth water! And it seems like a simple recipe too.

What do you have for us this week? For those new to the carnival, this carnival is dedicated to sharing tips and recipes on how we make nourishing food work on a budget. In other words, how to eat quality food for less. Use the Mr. Linky below to link to your post on the subject, just make sure to link back to this post and keep things family friendly.

Can’t wait to read everyone’s posts this week!

The following two tabs change content below.
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!

    These versatile, economical, grain-free pancakes are light, fluffy, nutritious, and delicious. They’re full of fiber and protein. They’re great as a breakfast and as a quick, healthy snack during the day.

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now, and you’ve inspired me to refurbish my old blog. I’m new to the whole Mr. Linky and carnival posting, so please let me know if there is any blogger etiquette I missed.

    Hi Kimi, thanks for the link to the Moroccan chicken stew. It is really simple, and tasty (why don’t we cook with cinnamon in savory dishes more?). With all of the rain we’re having, a big pot of stew hits the spot.

    Has anyone heard of Saving Dinner online with Leanne Ely? She makes out the menu’s with the grocery lists and freezer cooking too. She separates them into type’s such as beef, fish etc. and then sells them online. Wouldn’t that be neat if someone did that with nourishing traditions? Of course, I could get her meals and then substitute but I think it would be easier and even more healthy to do this. What do others think? Would it be to reduntant?

      I’ve actually looked around to try to find something like that. If someone actually made it, I’d sign up.
      Maybe the problem is that once people start to really think about their diets, there start to be too many individual restrictions to create a single menu plan for distribution?

    What a fabulous assortment of frugal dishes!! I can’t wait to browse everyone’s submissions.

    I have a seasonal vegetarian soup – totally frugal and made with my homemade veggie stock. Full of flavor and nutrients, even my meat eating hubby loves this!

    It looks like ‘soup’s on…” and I have one to add: creamy potato leek!
    One question: I can’t seem to figure out how to get the title of my post in with my name above…thanks, Kimi!

    Hey Kimi, I couldn’t find a way to contact you – so I am posting it in a comment. I follow your blog and am passionate health foodie who recently discovered Real Food and WAPF this year (well, last year). I have been devouring books and everything I can find. However I am still stumped on one issue. What type of olive oil do you think is best to buy? I know that we should look for one in a dark bottle, organic, with very little refining, cold pressed, from Italy, etc.. but I am having trouble discerning from all the brands! I currently have a Carapelli olive oil, but the taste is very strong (which I assume means it’s not very refined) but I just want to find a good olive oil (or two- a lighter and stronger tasting one) that has the most health benefits and as close to the real thing as possible (also without paying an arm and a leg). I would appreciate any info you can lend on the subject! Thanks, Meagan from Mutritious Nuffins

      Hey Meagan,

      That’s an issue I have struggled with as well. It can be hard to find a good brand. I’ve been buying my olive oil in bulk from a farm in California. It’s sooooo mild and good. They also have a great price for a gallon. They are on my resource page (they are just a small company, so they don’t always have it in stock). By far my favorite brand I’ve tried so far, though I know that there must be other great brands out there too!

    Yesterday’s leftover roasted chicken is slowly simmered in a deep red chili sauce with strips of fresh poblano, cumin and garlic, then spooned into a fried masa boat and topped with crisp white onions, fresh cilantro, avocado and bits of fresh cheese..

    Hi Kimi – I’m looking for a carnival you posted a while ago on foods to go. I’m not finding it in your list of carnivals. Thanks.

    I made ElizabethG’s Moroccan Chicken Stew on Saturday and we really enjoyed it. Thanks for highlighting this recipe since I am kind of lazy about clicking through links on the carnivals. DH and I decided our modifications would be more sweet potato and less cayenne pepper, but it was delicious – and made a huge pot of stew. I’ll probably used chopped roast chicken in this next time too as it cheaper. Thanks!
