Pennywise Platter Thursday 3/22

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, this week I’m sharing my basic muffin recipe that feeds our family of 14 (sometimes doubled) instead of relying on boxed cereal.

    I am on the third post of a five week series on housekeeping. Sounds weird, but really, you need to get it under control or you will just be depressed. This week is zones, or how to divide and conquer. I will hold your hand as you walk through making lists of chores and then tomorrow I will help you figure out what to do with those lists!

    Thanks for hosting Kimi! This week I’m sharing a simple dessert that’s so good no one will know it’s full of probiotics and good for them! 😉

    This week I’m continuing my organ meats series with a look at my favorite way to serve Liverwurst. Yum! I’m also sharing about my decision to do GAPS Intro again and the benefits I’ve noticed so far. And I delve into what whey is and how to make your own. You no longer have to wonder what the Little Miss Muffet rhyme is all about!

    This week I’m sharing my latest REAL FOOD 101 post about how to make whey and “cream cheese” from dripped yogurt. So multi-purpose!

    Second, I have a dual recipe for my tried and true pie crusts. I make an excellent sprouted flour version, but while I was on GAPS I also honed my favorite GAPS-legal one using coconut flour.

    I’m also giving my recipe for the best breakfast I have had in a while: Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Waffles with Blackberry Sauce. Oh my, these nearly put me in a food coma this morning, and then about an hour later I was burning with energy. Yum 🙂

    Happy Thursday!

    This week I am sharing an old family favorite: beet pickled eggs.

    Plus a fun way eat pasta: but GRAIN FREE! Sun dried tomato and artichoke heart (zoodle) pasta (made with zucchini noodles). Sooo yum!

    Have a great week,

    I apologize, but I messed up on my link. #75 says my name, rather than the recipe’s name. Oops! It should be Chinese Chicken Casserole, so I corrected it and it’s #76 right now.
