(I'm starting a new thread so that this idea doesn't get lost.)

Ok, let's get serious about a BR (and MS) support group. First, we need a count of about how many are interested. Then, when we'll meet. I suggest meeting once a month, like Lisa said, and a set schedule would be easiest, such as the last Saturday of every month. I think a coffee shop would be a good place. I live in BR, so I can suggest some, but I'm not sure how familiar everyone is with the area. Oh! New thought! What about at the BR Whole Foods? There is only one, so everyone should be able to find it, and it's on a busy corner with easy access to interstates. Plus, they have a coffee/tea shop. Let me know! (And suggest a time!)

Lisa,
Since you'll be coming from out of town, what time would work for you? If others agree (and no one else comes up with a plan), then I propose the last Saturday of the month at the Whole Foods coffee shop. Whole Foods is located at the corner of Corporate Blvd. and Jefferson Hwy. in the Town Center shopping center.

I suggested the last Saturday of every month at the Whole Foods coffee shop. WF is at the corner of Jefferson Hwy. and Corporate Blvd. in the Town Center Shopping Center (Baton Rouge). I'm leaving the time up to someone else as I live in BR and can meet at any time.

Ok so Andie and I were messaging back and forth, This weekend isn't going to be a good weekend since its Memorial Day weekend and I am sure a lot of you already have plans so What we would like to do is have a FIRM PLAN to meet the last Saturday of Jun which is the 29th. This gives everyone a whole month to make plans to be there. Could everyone please say if they would attend or not so we can get some kind of count so that we can find a place that would fit everyone. Y'all know BR area better than I do and she suggest Whole food coffee shop so lets plan this for a FIRM date...Can't wait to meet everyone!!

I am in! I usually go to the Farmer's Market Saturday morning and am finished by 9:30 a.m. So anytime thereafter is good for me. What is best for Lisa since she is coming out of town? I am so excited to meet Lisa - what an inspiration!!

I was even thinking we could sit outside if it's in the evening. Pulling out the clothes in the store may make us look like bag ladies!:dizzy:

Any time is good for me. I'm leaving that decision to someone else, especially for those who have to drive some distance.

Well with everything that is going off with me, I don't know if I will be able to make it. No job kinda puts a damper on my gas, food and bills come first before gas. But I will play it by ear :)

I'm definitely interested also! I'm pretty new to this, so i'm looking forward to meeting people doing this and learn things also. I live in Zachary, so it's not a bad drive. My biggest thing is that i'm a hairstylist, so I work Saturdays till about 3-4. I just don't know how open people are to later afternoons.

Are we still on for today or not? Also, someone told me that their coach at Woman's Hospital said that the dressing at Albasha's was okay to have on IP. Does anyone else go there and heard this? Yum, yum, I hope so!

I asked this at the beginning of the week and got no responses so I don't know.

Thanks wonderful! I love the chicken swarma salad there. I usually order it without feta and dressing. I love their dressing. Glad I can have it.

Nope, and Cyndie I am not positive we can have the Albasha dressing. I am trying to confirm with others who were told this.......the oliver oil is supposedly whipped to make it creamy with lemon garlic, etc. I wanted to see if anyone else could confirm this for me.

beckah12
06-30-2012, 06:03 PM
i make a similar dressing in a food processor. the creaminess comes from emulsifying the olive oil and garlic, olive oil alone cannot be whipped from my experience. that style of dressing is IP compliant but I use it sparingly because it takes a decent amount of oil to achieve that consistency.

Maybe we can plan early for the last Saturday in July? It sounds like such a fun idea. If you are out of work at that time, I'll come pick you up. I have a prius that gets awesome gas mileage. :D

A meet up would be fun! I'd love the chance to meet everyone, hear stories, share tips and tricks, etc. The Whole Foods in BR works well for me. Maybe a Saturday early afternoon so Wuv doesn't have to wake up super early for the drive? What date/time works well for you Wuv?
