Reading Hy Vee seasons Volume 4 Issue 5

Thanksgiving is coming fast! Are you ready? I know I am! I always look forward to getting my Hy Vee Season book in the mail. It always has loads of information on the latest season with great gift ideas, decorations, and recipes. I received the Fall 2010 Seasons Book, Volume 4- Issue recently and found easy recipes that are to die for! And I got it right in time for the holiday. On page 23, Hy Vee shares quick side dishes and desert. I found Festive Green Beans that look so yummy and really easy to make.

What’s your plan for Thanksgiving? Will you be cooking a big meal? Want some great ideas? I suggest you grab up a Hy Vee Seasons Book. They don’t cost a dime and have lots of helpful ideas.

Want to try out the Festive Green Beans like me? Here’s how to do it!

Saute fresh or high-quality frozen green beans in a little olive oil until crisp tender. The oil will make the vegetables glisten. Transfer the beans to a serving dish and top them with chopped pecans and dried cranberries. And Walla! A yummy, easy to make, decorative side dish. Enjoy!

Do you want super-lustrous hair? Did you know that massaging your scalp with warm oil eases anxiety and smooths your hair so it looks shiny and glossy? Yes! It really does according to Daniel Krasofski, director of spa services at One Spa in L.A.

Here’s how to do it!

1. Heat up a few tablespoons of sesame, sweet almond or olive oil- it should be warm, but comfortable to the touch.

2. Before a shower, dip your fingers into the oil, and start massaging at the nape of the neck. Continually redipping, cover your entire scalp, moving up to your hairline.

3. Place a towel around your head and relax for 20 minutes.

4. In the shower, add shampoo directly to hair (do not get it damp first)- this allows the shampoo to breakdown the oil so it will wash away easily. Later and rinse.

Yields: 1 application

That’s it! Another easy way to pamper yourself, relax, and great some great looking hair! Stay tuned for more Spa Treatments from Eat, Love, Shop.
