Pennywise Platter Thursday 7/21

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 for hosting! I’m sharing this supper easy recipe that can be used for vegans, vegetarians, people with gluten or nut allergies. It’s easy to make with ingredients that most of us have kicking around.

    Thank you for hosting! I know strawberry season is over for most of you in the states, but the party’s still going up here in Alberta, so here’s a recipe for a strawberry-rhubarb cobbler for one or two people.

    Thanks for hosting, Kimi! It’s been awhile since I contributed, but I’ve got a post on oatmeal today, including tips for soaking and adding more protein. We buy our oats in 25lb bags for $15 – truly a frugal breakfast!

    I shared a recipe to use up the copious summer squash/zucchini at this time of year: cheese and veggie cakes! I also linked to a post on using a spreadsheet to keep track of preserved foods. Thanks!

    I shared a chocolate cake that is amazing…GAPS-friendly yet moist and delicious. I made it for my son’s birthday. We put some coconut oil frosting on it and my husband said it tasted like German chocolate. I’d imagine if you added some coconut flakes it would be a lot like that. Anyway, yummy. 🙂
