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 submission this week was a mess….but very yummy! Thanks for hosting. 🙂
This week’s submissions are looking good! I added my summer vegetable skillet pizza recipe as my offering. 🙂
This weeks recipe is a Braised Lamb Shoulder that was sooo good! Thanks for hosting!!
The natural sweet flavor of Bartlet pears pair well with the tart cranberry. Here’s a recipe that is perfect for this time of year when pears are ripe and ready but fresh cranberries still have a few more weeks before harvest. Using up the last of the frozen cranberries leaves space for this year’s pickings!
Melba Toast Crackers can be made your own healthy bread. They are also delicious.
Balsamic Roasted Figs 🙂
My fig tree is over producing this year…
Thanks for hosting such a great carnival!
Good morning, I’m eager to read more on your finds regarding phytic acids Kimi. I recently made a Garbanzo salad which fits right in with your current research. Blessings
Homemade pizza crust. Cheap, easy and SO much healthier than store bought.

Wellll….I did use white pasta in my dish, but one could easily substitute whole wheat or even homemade and make a much more nourishing dish. It’s just so simple to make and perfect as an inexpensive dish to pass, and the flavors meld so well…I had to share. But if you need to blow away my link, Kimi, I understand. It’s a compromise dish in our household, but a yummy one!
Have a lovely holiday weekend – hope you are feeling well!

Hello! I’m sharing easy empanadas. This is a guest post and Tara (from Keep It Real blog) even includes an informative video to show her folding technique. Have a wonderful day, all!

Many folks buy organic canned food as they believe it healthier than regular, cheap canned foods. I did some research and you need to know a few things before using organic canned foods for your frugal dishes! Please especially read the comments section of this blog if you do your own canning at home!

I’m sharing an easy recipe for gluten-free almond flour waffles.
Thanks for hosting!

Adding my homemade breakfast sausage. Basic recipe that can be changed up for a variety of diets (Feingold, etc) and using any ground meat you desire. Perfect for chilly autumn mornings and portable for lunchboxes and picnics too!
I accidentally posted mine with the wrong format! SO SORRY!!
But, I hope you all enjoy the recipe if you try it out.
Check out our budget-friendly solution for GF tabbouleh!

Hope you are doing well.
A few days ago a reader asked how we keep our food budget so low. My post today is some of the things we do that help us with that.
Kelly is touching on this very subject in her class
This is so fun! Thanks so much for hosting!! Now I’m getting hungry!! 😉
Kate @ Modern Alternative Mama
My link actually has links within it to several recipes which “replace” some of my favorite junk foods. Like, kombucha replaces pop. 🙂
My link this week is a post on how to organize all your yummy recipes!
To your success,
Here’s my first success with lacto-fermented pickles!

frozen fruit is hardly a recipe, but it beats a HFCS, food coloring laden popsicle any day of the week, and my kids go bonkers for it! thanks for hosting kimi.
The gluten free muffin im submitting this week uses all natural ingredients and probably has almost a serve of veggies in each one!
I love learning tips about even more ways of doing this!
