Pennywise Platter Thursday 12/29

Update: Some of you have not been linking to the carnival. Please remember this carnival courtesty. Posts not linking back here, may be deleted from the carnival, as I don’t have time to leave a comment at each person’s post requesting a link. Thanks!

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 There~

    This week I am sharing a fun twist on traditional hummus (also SCD approved): Roasted Garlic Lentil Hummus.

    Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year.

    Be Well,

    This week I announced my 30-Day GAPS Challenge, which we are preparing for from now until January 15 which is the day we officially start! I’m also promoting Cara @ Health, Home, & Happiness’s ebook tailor-made for getting through 30-Days of GAPS Intro Diet (though my challenge will accomodate both GAPS Intro and Full GAPS folks for the 30 days). I hope some of your readers will feel up to the challenge and will come and join in.

    Hi! I shared a tip on getting kids to eat real food, an amazing 2-ingredient cookie recipe, and a post on how I replaced dryer balls with a chemical-free alternative.

    I also hit something inadvertently and posted a link called “rep”. Oops. Feel free to delete that.

    Thanks for hosting!

    Hi Kimi,
    I’ve linked a frugal, family-pleasing, warming Beef Pot Roast that has a Low Carb Option for those who might watch that but still want traditional flavor. The recipe is gluten-free although you can just use regular flour if you’re aren’t concerned about gluten. It’s naturally dairy-free, as well.
    Best wishes for a happy new year to you and your family!

    Thanks for hosting! Sharing our final muffin recipe of 2011 – Chocolate Peppermint. These are a little sweeter than we usually bake, but since it is the holiday season (still), we’re indulging a bit. 🙂

    Best wishes to you and your family in the new year! ~Lisa
