Pennywise Platter Thursday 2/17

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.

    Hi Kimi,

    I linked up our favorite muffin recipe: GF Molasses Spice Muffins. It makes our whole house smell good! Thanks for hosting this event.

    Hi Kimi! finally getting my act together after being behind the 8 ball for a few weeks! I am linking up a quick and easy Mark Bittman recipe for compound butter that I made with raw butter and fresh herbs. It is terrific on sourdough toast and also on roasted poultry! All the best! Alex

    Made these sweet potato hash browns for the first time last weekend based on a recipe I found for oven fried sweet potatoes — Score! Great weekend breakfast treat!

    Thanks for hosting! I’m linking up a most delicious muffin – Strawberry Surprise Muffins. My daughter and I baked these up for Valentines. The surprise is the yummy homemade strawberry jam in the middle (a great way to use up some of that homemade jam from last spring!). Blessings. 🙂

    Today I’ve linked Lasagna with Spinach, which was my version of economical comfort food during this cold week we’ve had. The ingredients were not expensive, and having the oven on to bake it was a plus! I’m glad to report that even here in NE Ohio, the ice and snow are melting fast — it’s in the 50’s already this morning.

    I hope you enjoy my all natural (organic), sugar free chocolate covered cherry recipe! These homemade chocolate covered cherries are incredibly gourmet and luxurious, yet incredibly nourishing at the same time.

    Well, this is my first time sharing here, and I accidentally double-posted. My apologies! I’ve shared a delicious soaked grain pancake recipe that we love for breakfasts around here. Easy to set up the night before and so many ways to vary it healthfully!

    I declared this week love your oatmeal week and I’ve posted an out of the ordinary oatmeal recipe everyday. You can pick your sweetener so it fits in perfect with whatever your rules are!

    I am sharing my recipe for Cauliflower “Potato” Salad. It’s healthy and low carb since the cauliflower takes the place of potatoes. The flavor is the same as “real” potato salad- you hardly can tell the difference!
    Thanks for hosting!
