Pennywise Platter Thursday 5/3

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 Italian Sausage and Vegetable Soup. I love this recipe because you can make it with whatever vegies you choose. This version has green beans, fresh fennel and red swiss chard.
    Thanks for hosting!

    Hi Kimi! Thanks for hosting. 🙂

    This week I am sharing my latest REAL FOOD 101 post: all about how to use all-purpose yogurt dough. It’s soaked, versatile, and whole grain. Plus you can use it to make crackers, pizza, pie crust, and so on. The possibilities are endless!

    I’m also sharing my recipes for really crispy hash browns (do you know the trick to that?) and my Linky Links for the month of April. Enjoy!

    I shared my post on how to eat a quarter of a cow even if you don’t like the taste of beef. Buying grass-fed beef by the quarter or half is usually the most economical choice, but eating all that beef can be challenging if you’re not a big beef fan! I’m sharing what I’ve found works for me.

    Hi Kimi and thank you so much for hosting this wonderful collection of wholesome recipes. This week I’m sharing my super slow food from Italy.

    I added a Pineapple Pork Roast. I freeze the core of the pineapple every time I buy a fresh one. Then when I make this recipe I have “free” pineapple! 🙂
