Pennywise Platter Thursday 6/9

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.

    Thanks again for hosting! I really enjoy all the links and new ideas this provides. I’m sharing a GF Asparagus Quiche – it’s pretty easy and quite tasty. Enjoy!

    I collected a huge bag of stinging nettles yesterday. Not only are they a delicious green, they are super-nutritious and highly medicinal. Nettle infusions are very popular. But I prefer to just cook with them, and eat my medicine. I’m sharing a recipe for nettle paneer, which is a play on the classic spinach dish.

    Hi Kimi! Thank you for hosting Pennywise Platter. I’m sharing a recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter fudge, which I actually adapted from your recipe for Chocolate Fudge! It is delicious!

    Thanks again,

    I have a great recipe for whole grain muffins, gluten and dairy free, with raisins. Other fruit could easily be substituted. They are on the sweet side, but not too terrible if you make them small!

    Thanks for hosting, Kimi. Today I linked up a post on how to make broth and soup with chicken feet. Nothing like feet to produce a beautiful broth.

    It’s very hot here and we’re going for cold dishes right now, so I’ve linked up Super Carrot Dressing. It has few ingredients and can be made thick or thin depending upon the intended use. 🙂

    Thanks, Kimi!

    I’m a little late, but I shared my soaked rhubarb coffeecake – it’s simple and delicious, and definitely frugal, especially if you grow rhubarb or know someone who does! 🙂

    thanks for giving us a chance to share what we’re up to in our kitchens! I posted a link to my new e-cookbook that has over 50 whole food recipes!
