Pennywise Platter Thursday 4/12

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 love beautiful and simple food that is nourishing to the body and the soul.

    Hello Pennywise Platter Thursdays!

    Good Morning, I posted some of our favorite mashed potatoes. They are made with real ingredients. This makes a huge batch so there are some for the freezer.

    Happy Thursday!
    I shared my recipe for Fennel and Prosciutto Soup. My blog post also gives information about the difference between fennel and anise- they are two totally different plants!
    Thanks for hosting Kimi!

    I posted “The Power of Real Food”. It’s an amazing testimony of a doctor with Multiple Sclerosis, who by changing her diet, went from a wheelchair to riding 18 miles on her bike.

    Hi Kimi! This isn’t a recipe, but it’s a post I wrote at one of Time’s Top 50 Websites of the Year on nourishing food and how it helped me to regain my fertility (and sanity). I hope the important message about butter being healthful will reach many!

    Here is the link to the article

    I also write lots about combining a nourishing diet with a young, foodie (and maybe slightly hedonistic) lifestyle over at

    We love your recipes!!! 🙂

    Hello pennywise people!

    This week I made $1,000 Egg Baskets—flakey, cheesy pastry wrapped around eggs and green chile. Hoo-boy these are good! It’s a recipe from my grandmother’s 1950s cooking show called “Today’s Kitchen;” I’m cooking through her old recipes and updating them as needed. These are wonderful for dinner, but they would be amazing for brunch, too. Mother’s day, anyone?

    Stop by and say hello!

    Thanks for hosting! This week my post is a little different. It is links to five small bloggers who inspire me and what I think of them and how I found them. I also hope you will add some of yours to the list!

    First time posting, I love everyone’s recipes and suggestions.

    My entry is very simple but it works for when we are busy and hectic. It can be turned into so many different meals and it keeps on giving.

    Hi Kimi,

    Just found your blog and am really enjoying everyone’s blogs and ideas here. I’m doing a series on my blog called “Know Your Nutrients” right now. Each day I’m posting some info about each nutrient and the real foods where we can find them.
