Picnic

Let's have a day outside and get to know each other. Everyone bring a Fibro healthy dish and questions you'd like to ask each other. More details to come regarding the location. If the date and time doesn't work for everyone we can change it. Also, we should have a backup plan in case of rain.

    I wanted to remind everyone to wear your purple and don't forget your ingredients cards! See everyone tomorrow! :)

    Does anyone have a small generator they can bring so we can keep something warm?

  • Jane W.

    We are actually celebrating Father's Day with my husband's father that day, so I will be unable to attend. I'm really sad I can't make it, but please let me know what comes from the meeting, if anything. Thank you, Jane.

    1 · June 9, 2014

    • Crystal P.

      We will miss you and keep you updated on the meeting/plans for July. :)

      Thanks sweetheart and hope everyone has a blast!

    Please update me on the meeting as I am unable to attend the picnic. Thanks!

      I hope to see you at next months meeting once it's planned!

      June 9, 2014

  • Mary Ann M.

    I called about the shelter to see if there is electricity. Unfortunately there is not. So if anyone needs to keep something warm you will have to bring something that doesn't need electricity like a camping stove.

    1 · June 9, 2014

  • Crystal P.

    Ok this is what I have so far: Crystal - curry chicken salad and potatoe salad, Sharon - lite Waldorf salad, Julie - drinks, plates, etc., Beth - peanut slaw, Jill - butterscotch Blondies. I need to know from Laurie, Mary Ann, Amanda, Robin, Christinia, and Wendy what you are bringing. We are in need of another protein, fruit, veggies, and maybe another dessert. Remember to make or buy enough for at least 20+ people.

    June 4, 2014

    • Crystal P.

      Mary Ann maybe someone has a camping burner...I used to but have no clue where it would be. Haven't seen it in about 10 years! Lol

      June 4, 2014

    • Crystal P.

      I just spoke with Laurie and she's bringing a spring cucumber salad.

      1 · June 4, 2014

  • Crystal P.

    I will also be bringing our DFF tshirts if any memebers would be interested in buying one. I have large and extra large available. They are $19.50 a piece.

    June 4, 2014

  • Amanda P.

    Is this picnic also for our spouses and children? Looking forward to it :)

    1 · June 2, 2014

    • Crystal P.

    To try and make this menu easier for everyone....If anyone has a certain diet they follow or have sensitivity to certain foods please let us know. I'd like everyone to be able to eat and take part in bringing something but don't want us to waste the money in making something that can't or won't be eaten.

    I know that many fibro people have nightshade issues, which potatoes are and wheat is an even more common issue so pasta is not good.

    May 30, 2014

  • Crystal P.

    For those who haven't confirmed they are going please do and we also need to know what you will bringing food wise. Fibro healthy food. You can go to Beth ' s blog for some good ideas or Google fibro healthy picnic food. Let us know as soon as you can please. Thank you!

    I had the wrong weekend concerning my other commitment. I would still like to come to the picnic but I am low income and cannot afford more than a couple of dollars.

    1 · May 25, 2014

    • Crystal P.

      My hubby has to work but I'll see if my son wants to come...doubt it but maybe! Lol

      May 25, 2014

    • Mary Ann M.

      My husband will be with me. I used my credit card to pay for the shelter. It really doesn't matter if I don't get it all back. I don't want anyone to not come because of lack of money. I would love to see everyone there.

      1 · May 25, 2014

  • Crystal P.

    My mom will be bringing a Lite Waldorf Salad.

    May 24, 2014

  • Mary Ann M.

    We finally have a reservation made. It is at Eastwood Metropark at 1385 Harshman Rd. The shelter is Riverview. You can get a map of the park by going to their website which is www.metroparks.org. Click on link on left for Eastwood. Then on right click on"see map"which is next to Parking. You will park in the lot that is just below the Blue Lake. The shelter is the 2nd shelter to the left of the lot. I hope everyone can go.

    1 · May 23, 2014

    • Christina

      Thanks! I'll bring a veggie tray and money. I'll bring a little extra Incase there anew any no shows.

      2 · May 24, 2014

    • Julie W.

      That shouldnt cost much per person.... Thanks for taking care of that :) :)

      1 · May 24, 2014

  • Crystal P.

    I'm good to bring curry chicken salad sandwiches on multi grain bread along with a light potato salad.

    1 · May 23, 2014

  • Crystal P.

    Ok hills and dales only had parking for 4 vehicles. Mary Ann is checking into Germantown Metro Park this evening. No worries we will find a place that has a shelter and parking! Look for more info to come!

      I am sorry but I have another commitment for the afternoon and Germantown is just way too far for me to go and still make my other commitment.

      May 22, 2014

    • Crystal P.

      We are looking into some other parks. Hopefully we will find one that works for everyone! We will update as soon as we find one.

      May 22, 2014

  • Christina

    Indian Ripple park in Kettering has 2 shelters and plenty of parking but not sure how far they book them and not sure who to contact about it. Just thought I would throw it out there as an option as it is fairly close to 675.

    May 22, 2014

    • Crystal P.

      Those are all booked...The only ones in Kettering that are available are at Wenzler Park and one by Southdale. Those are on a 1st come basis.

      May 22, 2014

  • Christina

    Really excited to meet everyone. I will look at the website for suggestions but I am a horrible cook so I make no promises :) Is there anything still needed that is non food related?

    1 · May 22, 2014

    • Crystal P.

      I'm not much of a cook either. Whatever is easiest for you will be just fine. I think we have slaw, fruit salad, and drinks, plates, napkins taken care of. Maybe a dip or veggies.

      May 22, 2014

    1 · May 21, 2014

  • Crystal P.

    Problem has occurred....There our no shelters available in the city of Kettering to reserve in the month of June. Would someone like to take the responsibility of finding a park with a shelter that can be reserved?

    May 20, 2014

    • Crystal P.

      Thank you Mary Ann! You're a rock star! Jill hills and dales may be 2 miles farther than delco.

      May 21, 2014

    • Julie W.

      Yes i will gladly help pay toward the rental.... Thanks Mary Ann!!!!

      1 · May 21, 2014

  • Crystal P.

    Now that we have a park with a shelter...Thank you Mary Ann...we need to make sure 100% what everyone is bringing. I also thought it would be a good idea to write down a recipe card if it's homemade or where you purchased it. Remember Fibro healthy. Wear your purple and have any questions ready. I will bring the tshirts if anyone is interested in purchasing one.

    May 21, 2014

  • Crystal P.

    Just to let everyone know. I will be moving the day after this meeting into a home we just bought! My kitchen will be packed up but I will find something to bring!

    May 18, 2014

  • Crystal P.

    Ok it's time to start planning our menu...Fibro healthy! Everyone post what you'll be bringing. I'll also contact Kettering Parks & Rec about reserving a shelter.

      Hi Mindy, I do have a new blog, Fibro and Food. I am adding content and recipes, so check in regularly. I am pretty amazed at the effect foods have on my pain levels.
