Here’s an update on my 12 projects for 2012:

Spinach Artichoke Dip

  1. Make a headband out of an old t-shirt. - I started this yesterday.
  2. Complete my price book! I’ve been procrastinating on this way too long.
  3. Try my hand at regrowing green onions. - I actually did this and it was working great, but then my onions got slimy. I think I wasn’t replacing the water enough. I tossed them out, but plan on buying some more and starting over again!
  4. Make foaming hand soap from regular liquid hand soap.
  5. Make spinach feta quiche. – I’ve made this with feta cheese, and with replacing the feta with cheddar, which I think tasted better and was cheaper!
  6. Make copy cat Olive Garden salad.
  7. Make homemade hummus from homemade tahini.
  8. Try curling my hair with a sock.
  9. Make something from The Frugal Girl’s ebook.
  10. Make homemade play-dough - Tammy from Tammy’s Recipes has it priced (for the cheaper unscented kind) at only 27 cents for 2 cups!
  11. Make homemade pasta.
  12. Make spinach artichoke dip - I made this for us to snack on while we watched the Super Bowl and it was really good! The only things I did different in the recipe was skipping the basil and I replaced the Romano cheese with more Parmesan.

Have you tried any fun projects or new recipes this year?

I made the spinach, mushroom, feta crustless quiche a couple weeks ago, which was one of my 12 projects for 2012!  turned out great and here’s what I liked about it:

  • It’s healthy.
  • It tastes great!
  • It’s a pretty cheap recipe. Budget Bytes calculated that it cost $6.19 to make, which is definitely cheaper than going out to eat!
  • It’s crustless!! I almost never make quiche for one simple reason….I dread making the crust, but I loved how this recipe didn’t call for a crust.

This is recipe is definitely one I’ll keep making, but I might try changing a few of the ingredients, like maybe trying a cheaper substitution for the feta cheese.

Now I’m excited about trying another one of my 2012 projects!!!
