Pennywise Platter Thursday 4/26

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 Thursday-
    Thank you for hosting us Kimi!
    This week I’m sharing a recipe for Sprouted Gluten-Free Bread. The extra efforts of sprouting are rewarded by this tender, sandwich-able bread!
    Best wishes,
    Nourishing Foodways

    I found a great deal on chicken the other day so I have tons if the freezer. I left a very flavorful crockpot recipe for Coq Au Vin. Thanks for hosting!

    Hi Kimi!

    This week I am sharing my latest casserole creation that tastes just like the real thing: Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole (with gluten-free options).

    Plus, I just put up my Molasses Crinkles recipe, which is one of the first real foodifications I ever did, back in the newly-aware-of-Nourishing-Traditions days. 🙂

    Thank you for hosting! I hate paying over $3 per jar of marinara (as a running/cycling family we eat a lot of pasta!) I went looking for a good basic marinara recipe and could not find one that did not use canned goods. I was determined to create one of my own that avoided all canned ingredients. I usually buy my tomatoes at our local farmer’s market – I go for the cheap, overly ripe section and use them to create different no-can marinara’s as often as possible. Today I’m featuring my Marinara #1 – roma tomato, roasted red pepper & basil. Enjoy!

    Hello Kimi,

    Hope you’re well!

    This week I am sharing 2 recipes:

    (1) Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes (free of: grains, gluten, dairy, soy, and cane-sugar – also SCD friendly)

    (2) Grain Free Spanish “Rice” (this is also a SCD friendly recipe)

    Have a great weekend.

    Be Well,

    I shared my recipe for BBQ Chicken Salad with Cornbread Croutons. My cornbread recipe is gluten free, but it can be made with “regular” flour instead of the gluten free flour mix if you don’t have issues with gluten.
    Thanks for hosting!
