Pennywise Platter Thursday 11/10

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.

    I shared a recipe we’ve developed over the years for waffles made from whole brown rice. They’re “blender batter” style and soaked overnight. We’ve served them to lots of people who aren’t gluten free and everyone loves them. Enjoy!

        Hi Peggy,

        I had to figure it out too! Scroll up a few to where it says:

        “This site is using Mister Linky’s Magical Widgets. Click here to display the links for this post.” Click the word link “here” and it will take you to the recipe links.

    I kept thinking I’d find a recipe for acorn and/or carnival squash to be served in the half shell, but I finally just decided to create one…and I’m so glad I did! Simple flavors blend to make something really wonderful with this recipe. Thanks for hosting, Kimi!

    This week I shared a great way to use up that left over pumpkin puree in a nourishing, healthy smoothie for my kids. It worked great as an afternoon pick-me-up as we were running out the door to ballet class.

    Be Well,

    I’ve been playing around with acorn flour, and have come up with a delicious and simple acorn blini. I’m also lucky to have fresh-caught trout come through my house, so it seemed natural to make caviar, and then, how could I resist nourishing creme fraiche? Such a gorgeous combo, and believe it or not, very economical!

    I ‘m sharing my new favorite soup, my own version of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Tuscana Soup. I hope you are having a wonderful week. Blessings!!

    I shared my Cranapple Sauce. I also shared an article about the great new book, Tender Grassfed Barbecue, and an interview with Dr. Pentti Nuponnen, an holistic dentist who will be speaking at the WAPF conference this week!

    Thanks for hosting!

    Hi Kimi!

    I am sharing my Best Bean Recipes, Cooking Tips and Money saving Info – and –

    Information on Natural Skin Care for Rosacea – a condition that affects 45 million people = and how I cured mine.

    I posted my temporary solutions to processed pet food – looking for more ideas. And I posted pt 2 in the series about fats (bad fats).

    Peanuts are technically a legume but are so much like a nut. And, they are pretty damn cheap. But, are they healthy? I take a tiny look into this in a post I published earlier this week.

    At the Primal Smoothies site I link to a delicious smoothie recipe with kombucha. Enjoy!

    Thanks for hosting, Kimi! This is THE best carnival that I do! Because several ladies mentioned to me the rising price of cream cheese, I wrote a post with instructions on making it at home and a recommendation for the specific culture to use. I hope you all try it because I love spreading the love of all things dairy!

    Hi Kimi, and thank you for hosting! Today I am linking to my post on 4 ways to add greens to your diet, besides salads! One way is excellent for teaching children in the process, as well.

    Blessings to all,

    no idea why…I tried several different computers, but when I click the link to see all the posts, the caption “you’re next!” is not linked or clickable to add something…am I doing something wrong?

    Here’s my recipe for Water Kefir. It’s bubbly, and fermented, and a wonderful substitution for soda pop. I’ve made Kombucha tea in the past, but this is much easier and has much of the same properties and benefits. Yummy too.

    Here’s the link from Mr. Linky. This is new to me, so I’m not sure if I did it right.
