Pennywise Platter Thursday 9/13

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.

    My local organic co-op and neighboring farmer’s markets encourage savings by purchasing fresh, local, and seasonal. I’ve learned over the years that trying to buy out of season products from large chain supermarkets mean older food and higher prices.

    Hi Kimi,
    I posted an article on water (it’s part 2 in our series, this one has to do with tap water)
    I also posted two recipes – Munggo and Pork Menudo (both are Filipino stews)

    Thanks for hosting us all the time, this is always a great place to find great posts! This week I am talking birthday breakfasts and a special, but totally nourishing, chocolate porridge. Stop by and tell me what you like to serve for birthdays!

    Thank you!
    I’m sharing a Caprese salad recipe that adds a special ingredient to make it extra tasty. We’re using up the rest of our garden goodies, and this makes for a great way to do it!

    A bit new to this linky business, so didn’t get the title of my post correct above. I’m sharing a post on making whole milk ricotta at home. This is much less expensive than store-bought ricotta and you can avoid the extra preservative agents and stabilizers.
