Pennywise Platter Thursday 11/11

It’s time to share your frugal and nourishing tips and recipes! Where do you shop for quality food at a lower price? What recipe saves a penny? How do you balance a budget with nourishing food? Share here.

Please read through the three simple rules for those participating. This helps keep the quality of our carnival. Please read them through before linking and thanks again for your continued participation.

1) No linking to giveaways or promotions for affiliates or sponsors. One thing that I’ve noticed increasingly on Pennywise Platter is that I am getting more and more promotional pieces for affiliates or sponsors and a lot of giveaways. I’ve decided to keep Pennywise less “commercial” and more in tune with the spirit of the carnival by not allowing these links anymore. There was nothing wrong with those of you who linked to them, I just think that it will protect the integrity of our carnival better without them. Plus, it makes our links valuable in the future as well. A link to a giveaway three months old isn’t going to be worth browsing in three months time, but a link to a recipe for a frugal soup would be. I will be deleting any giveaway links or promotional links.

2) Keep the ingredients “nourishing”, such as whole grains, meats, vegetables, legumes, unrefined salt and sugars, chicken, etc. I am not going to be an ingredient police every week, but if there is a link to a post that is obviously not filling any of the criteria for healthy (for example, a white flour, white sugar birthday cake), I will delete that link. However, feel free to post vegetarian, vegan, raw, low-carb, etc.

3) Link back to the carnival This is common carnival courtesy. And more then that, it helps build the community of the carnival as you are sending your readers to others participating. And please, as a blogger, check out other’s posts and leave a comment! I know that we would all love to hear from each other.

    This recipe is one none of the kiddos should balk at! Chicken nuggets with a hidden healthy twist…they are dunked in sweet potato as part of the wet mixture. However, you won’t taste it and neither will they. This is definitely a family favorite at our home, and is sure to be a favorite at your’s, too. Enjoy!

    Thanks for hosting! My recipe is a GAPS Friendly (aside from a baking soda cheat which you could omit) sandwich bread. My kids loved these and I’ve made grilled cheese, pb/honey/banana sandwiches with them. It’s so good to be able to make easy sandwich bread again after going grain-free for several weeks.

    Good morning Kimi, I hope you and your family are doing well today. Tis the season for harvesting pumpkins. I’ve posted how to make pumpkin purée two methods, steaming or roasting. Hoping it will bless someone today. Thank you for hosting. ~ Carmen

    I posted my Big Mac Salad. You can make enough for the family for around the price of a big mac (well, for how much they cost here, anyway 😉 ) and it’s much healthier too!

    I posted the Zucchini Feta Pancakes. We are eating Gluten Free/Grain Free and this recipe works as a terrific side dish in place of potatoes or rice. It would also make a great appetizer for the upcoming holiday entertaining.
