Pennywise Platter Thursday 3/29

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 my recipe for Mushrooms Stuffed With Fennel, Apple and Blue Cheese. This is a healthy appetizer recipe with low carbs because I never use bread crumbs as a filler. I chop up the mushroom stems and use them in the filling along with all of the other ingredients. Yum!
    Thanks for hosting!

    Hi Kimi.,

    Happy Thursday.

    This week I am sharing 2 recipes…

    (1) A roasted asparagus soup complimented with lemon and thyme. Vegan, and SCD friendly.

    (2) Super delicious sautéed lemon pepper Brussels Sprouts. My kids LOVE this and eat it up. The perfect spring dish.

    Have a great week!

    Thanks for hosting! I have an unusual link. This is the second to last in a weekly series on getting the house under control. This morning our carpenter called and asked for pictures of the work he had done for us. It is gorgeous work and I was glad my house was clean enough to be photographed. This is how I manage it with ten kids and homeschooling.

    I shared a post on how to dye eggs using foods you probably already have in the kitchen and information on how to start seeds and save money starting the garden.

    Hi and thanks for hosting! This week I’m sharing a wonderful recipe for Corned Beef Stew. This recipe always leaves some leftovers, plus you can freeze quart-size portions to defrost and serve anytime you want to feel nourished and comforted without a lot of time in the kitchen.

    Have a great weekend!
