vegetables in small container

Lightly Salting VegetablesI do not like frozen veggies without any salt. When I take spinach or broccoli out of the freezer, I put it into a small plastic container with a tiny bit of water. I then salt it and put the cover on, and shake it about to coat with the salted water. This way I don't need and butter or anything else. Microwave it and it is done in a jiffy and tastes great.

Re-dyeing Hair?About 2 weeks ago I decided to go from dark brown to blonde. I had 3 bleach sessions, professionally done, and it came out yellow so I went over it with a light brown. I loved it!
