Pennywise Platter Thursday 10/20

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 little family plans to get through almost 400 pounds of apples this fall! See how at the post I linked up, which includes a printable PDF of apple crisp, including slow cooker, soaked, gluten-free, and more.

    Thanks for hosting, Kimi!

    If you think that you don’t like brussels sprouts, think again. Reimagine them roasted in bacon grease until golden and crisped. I promise, this recipe will make your nightmares about soggy boiled brussels sprouts stop.

    HI Kimi,
    I shared my GF DF pizza crust and an article about the the iimportant Rodale Institute research that compares organic vs conventional ag. The results may surprise you!

    I posted a recipe for a simple Maple Pumpkin Custard. As it bakes, it forms two layers, a silky custard on the bottom topped with a pie-like pumpkin layer. Enjoy!

    Hey again! This week I linked to a post dedicated to how we and why we use a combination on raw, local, unfiltered honey and coconut oil to treat asthma in two of our kids. I hope it is helpful!

    Just revamped an old favorite, Chicken Broccoli Casserole from scratch, so forget the canned soup! A fried onion topping sets it off too. Warm, one-dish meal for fall and winter. Thanks for hosting 🙂
