Veggie Bar Recipe and Tutorial

I tried these veggie bars at a wedding a few months back.  I was surprised how delicious they were and I was on a mission to find the recipe.  The lady who made them said I could have the recipe but I was unable to to get with her.  I found this recipe and it is just like hers.  Here is the recipe:


Chop all veggies small
  • 1 tube crescent rolls
  • 1 cup chopped cauliflower
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 block cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 pack dry ranch dressing mix

Open the crescent rolls and make 2 large flat pieces.  Pinch the seams together or your bars will fall to pieces when you eat them.

  Next Mix the cream cheese, mayo, and ranch dressing in a bowl.  Spread this on top of the cooled bread.
  Add the chopped vegetables on top of the cream cheese, pressing them down as you add.  End with the cheese. 
I promise you these will not stay around long.  Everyone loves them.

Tips for Nurses, Gift Ideas, Useful Web Tools

Great tips and tools for a nurses

Blood There are a number of simple blood stain-removal methods. But hydrogen peroxide is probably available where you work and that does a number on blood. Make sure to avoid hot water.
Oil-based medications Baby or talcum powder will absorb grease. Or pretreat by pouring some detergent onto the spot and allowing to set for 10 minutes before washing. Some say dish soap is the most effective grease remover.
Alcohol-based medications Pretreat with detergent and rinse with cold water before throwing in the washer. If stain is stubborn, Good Housekeeping recommends pretreating a second time, and allowing the fabric to soak in cold water before washing again.
Feces An easy tidbit from Apartment Therapy: Letting stained fabric lie in the sun will resolve fecal stains (or, as referred to in this post, “Poo stains”). That, my friends, is called solar power.
Ball point pen Remove with rubbing alcohol.
Adhesives Soak in cool water to remove water-soluble adhesives.
Iodine Soak in warm water for 20 minutes with detergent, then wash, along with an oxygen-based bleach.
Vomit Rinse clean, pretreat with detergent, and wash in warm water.
Baby formula StainRemoval101 says first rinse, then pretreat with detergent and soak in cold water for about 30 minutes before washing.
Coffee For coffee stains, immediately blot stain to absorb excess liquid. Sponge stain with 1 part white vinegar to 2 parts warm water. Once stain is lifted, rinse and wash.
Mix 1 tablespoon white vinegar in ½ cup water and sponge solution onto affected areas to lift stain.
