Pennywise Platter Thursday 1/20/11

Join the Sugar Free Challenge, if you dare.

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.

    Linking up our version of “sausage”, egg and cheese McMuffins. These have a zero guilt factor built right in! Hee, hee. Hope you and your family enjoy these!

    Have a wonderful day all!

    I’m lucky enough to see a lot of fish come through my kitchen thanks to the fact that most of the people in my family love to fish. In the right season, the fish have eggs sacks, which are a nutritional gold mine. They can be be quickly pan-fried. But in order to maximize nutrition, I like to try to keep mine un-cooked. So I either make homemade caviar, or bottarga, which are both super simple and very inexpensive recipes.

    Thanks for hosting! I’m linking up our latest muffin recipe: Banana Oatmeal. We’ve converted the recipe to turn a good muffin into a great muffin, one that’s not only delicious, but also healthy and nutritious. Enjoy! ~Lisa 🙂

    Thanks for hosting Kimi!
    Today is Tu B’Shvat – the Jewish New Year for the trees.
    I made gluten-free dried fruit and nut bars with customary foods of the day; pomegranates, dates, almonds, and other dried fruit.

    Just posted Smoked Turkey & White Bean Soup. Soup is always economical and Diestel Smoked Turkey Thighs and Legs are very reasonable at Whole Foods Market — spend less than $5 for a leg and a thigh which makes a whole pot of soup!

    My apologies! My link to Turkey Breast for the Crockpot got in here twice — once with just the recipe name and once with my name first. I must not have waited long enough to see it post, but my keyboard controller has been making strange things happen to what I key in lately, so I just figured that the entry hadn’t registered. Sorry to be such a pain! If you would delete one, I’d hope you delete the first (number 32). Thanks!

    I’m loving the variety of entries here so far!
