For 2015 the Lindsay House has decided to introduce a series of you tube videos.  Our tips and recipes so that our guests and future guests might enjoy making these easy to follow recipes at home.  So a schedule of events was drawn up.  A screenplay/script/shoot schedule was written.  In making the first video a learning curve, to say the least, presented itself.  I come at this goal from the vantage point of “oh yeah, that camera did video some time ago, it’s all good, it will be fine” however life not to mention the shooting of you tube videos rarely go as planned.  So after my anti technology for lack of a better word tirade, we got to work problem solving.  Thanks to a friend, we had a camera to rely on and we did a “practice” shoot.  Once the practice shoot was done, we jumped right into the making of the first “Breakfast with Judy” video.  Stay tuned for the release of our first video!

Tubing the Wolf

August 5th, 2014

TubingI can’t even think of the last time or if I have ever been “tubing”.  I thought I would be essentially floating in a huge inter-tube, not the cadillac chair I was given, it was awesome! In Symco we got in right at the Symco Bridge across from Boondocks Bar, and floated the few miles to Fahser’s bridge.  It is quite a thing to figure out how your going to carry and on what tubes, because as in many activities, it is all about the drink and the nosh.  Floating along the river, we stopped at a few sandy places along the way to keep up our strength with the occasional snack, and be able to visit with one another, and joke and talk smart.  We were passed by a group of people who clearly were enjoying the river and the beautiful day as much as we were.  The weather was perfect and so was the company, it was a great time.  Thank you to Ann, Diana, Carrie, Gina, Kimberly and Stephanie for making it a great day and a lot of fun.  So at the end of the journey is Fahser’s bridge, which it seemed like a good idea to jump off the bridge so that is just what Ann and I did.

What a great day! There is so much to do and see right here in Waupaca County, don’t miss it!

Pigeon River Brewing

August 5th, 2014

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, my friend and I finally found the time  to go together to C&C Sales in Marion, Wisconsin.  Now for those of you who don’t know what C&C Sales is, it is an Amish grocery/dry goods store, where you can buy things like flour and sugar and other baking stuffs and groceries for a very reasonable price.  Once we arrived, and Tim was able to go in and “jones” around as we like to refer to it.  We discovered that not only do they carry a variety of grocery items they also carry some furniture, handmade rugs and other items.  One of those items being fresh fruit, it happened to be cherries that day.  You can place your order and C&C Sales will contact you once the fruit arrives, and of course we had to order fruit, more on those adventures later.

The second part of our day was stopping at Pigeon River Brewing for a bite to eat.  I have heard that their menu is very good, and we were not disappointed.  The service as well as the food was outstanding.  Blair and I split a black and blue burger and some of the best homemade fries I have ever tasted.  Seasoned just right.  Tim ordered a pizza, which of course I had to sample a piece and it was yummy as well.  Tim’s brother Thomas ordered a burger and fries and his was very tasty as well.  I am not a person who knows much about beer or the brewing thereof.  However I know enough to know that when you find people who are passionate about what they do, so much so that they want to share it with the world, that is a winning combination, and that is what Pigeon River Brewing has in spades.  So kudos to two gentleman for having a passion for brewing beer and let’s raise a toast to dreaming of big dreams.  http://www.pigeonriverbrewing.com/

The third part of our day was to stop at Dupont Cheese on the way back to Manawa from Marion.  I never tire of seeing all the different types of cheese and how delicious it is.  Dupont is no exception.  They have many varieties of beautiful cheeses to choose from.  Many of the dairy farms surrounding Manawa and Marion is where the cheese begins its journey as milk.  At Lindsay House Bed & Breakfast, we do our level best to keep the farmer’s in business.  Dupont is just a few minutes from Manawa on Highway 110.  http://www.dupontcheeseinc.com/

A beautiful evening on the Wolf River

July 15th, 2014

 

I so enjoyed spending time with friends at their home on the river tonight.  We sat on the patio having drinks and a nosh and waited for the rain to clear so we could take the kayaks down to the river.  Diana’s mom Ahnna and her husband Ken have a beautiful place on the river, a gorgeous yard, which I understood from Ahnna is due to Ken and his green thumb.  Once the rain passed, we grabbed the kayaks and Ann and Diana kayaked around the bend in the river and back. Now to say that I went that far kayaking would be–oh I don’t know–not true.  However once I figured out how I was going to get into the kayak, which I know sounds pretty easy and maybe it is.  For me though I had to figure out how not to come into contact with the water…right away.  So once in the kayak, and Ahnna kept talking about I needed a life jacket and could I swim, sheesh, it was making me nervous.  Bless her heart, jeepers creepers I needed to get more comfortable in the kayak.  I am not going to lie, there were some tippy moments, I made the gals nervous but it all worked out.  Paddled around a bit not far from the dock I must admit, but more than I actually thought I would.  I mean let’s be honest, I thought the only place I would wind up in is the river, but that didn’t happen, woot woot!

Once back to the dock, now I had to figure out how I was going to get out without taking the proverbial bath, and that isn’t necessarily an easy thing getting out of a kayak takes a bit of finesse, and then there was the way I did it.  Which I kept dry and hoisted myself out of the kayak, of course with Ahnna and Diana holding the kayak steady and Ann in her kayak on the side.  It helps to have the support of good friends whenever trying anything new.  The support of good friends is important always.

So thanks to Diana, Ann and Ahnna for such a fun evening.  Diana and Ann are the best, such fun and up for any adventure.  Thank you to Ken and Ahnna for opening your beautiful home to us and letting us experience if just for a little while, life on the river.

 

 

TDubs

May 8th, 2014

Some of you may have been wondering, and maybe not, where our April outing was or rather our April outing blogpost.  I must admit that I am a bit behind in posting about it.  Ann, Diana and I went to TDubs in Waupaca, on April 29th.  It was so nice to get together and catch up with each other on what has been happening in our little corners of the world.  T-Dubs is a warm and inviting space, with an open kitchen that you can sit at the bar and see the chef’s at work, it is really cool to watch the creative process of the kitchen staff.  We were greeted by Jenny, who I understand has been at TDubs for quite a long time, and she was our server as well and did a fabulous job, very knowledgable about the menu and the offerings of the evening.  I enjoyed a cucumber and mint wine spritzer type drink, it was fabulous, very refreshing.  Our appetizer was these cajun seasoned chips with a bleu cheese dipping sauce and let me just say, the dipping sauce was so good, and the chips had a bit of a kick, awesome! The pasta dish I ordered was Chicken Vesuvio, which is penne pasta and chicken with fresh mushrooms, asparagus, red peppers & onions, tossed in a lite white wine garlic butter sauce with chicken, and warm homemade bread, yummm!  Ann was pondering several choices, and in the end she ordered a sesame ahi tuna sandwich, which she really enjoyed. Diana ordered pasta as well, in a creamy tomato sauce with several different types of cheese and chicken. For anyone who has ever read any of my blog or my recipes in the local paper, you know dessert factors in heavily, ok probably the wrong turn of phrase to be used in this sentence, but dessert factors heavily into my life.  When you can have a dessert experience that varies from the everyday, oh you want it!! Jenny deftly ran through our dessert choices, and of course there was a standout, which I promptly ordered with 3 forks.  It was a chocolate cake made with Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Stout, and let me tell you, the vanilla undertones of the Bourbon Barrel Stout were highlighted in this dessert, not to mention that it was so moist, and light and the number one thing, just chocolatey enough to satisfy, but not over the top.  Double Yummy!

I have eaten at TDubs probably a half a dozen times, and have found something new and tastey each time.  Diana had been to TDubs before for a work related dinner.  Ann has lived in Waupaca County most, if not all of her life and she had never been to TDubs.  So it just goes to show you, there are alot of things to do and see right here in Waupaca County.

Many people think they need to go outside of Waupaca County to experience Wisconsin, and I am here to tell you, the heart of Wisconsin beats right here in Waupaca County.

I challenge you to find those things that are right around you, and experience something new.  It’s your day!

Rooms of Blooms at the Paine Art Center and Gardens

March 11th, 2014

Paine

Rooms of Blooms, held at the Paine Art Center and Gardens, is such a beautiful event.  Being able to enjoy the Paine Art Center as well as the flowers which seemed to be matched to the paintings that hung near them to a T.  The Florist’s adaptation of the canvas, as it were.  The competition in the Great Hall, that the public could vote on were 7 tables set with each designer’s beautiful and all very different ideas and looks to them.  Florists from around the Fox Valley did an amazing job. One of our Waupaca County Florists were featured, Cathy Spiegelberg owner/designer of Premier Petals in Weyauwega.  Cathy designed the flower arrangements in the Master Bedroom at the Paine for Rooms of Blooms, and they were amazing.  Kudo’s to all of the designers whose work made Rooms of Blooms amazing!  Thank you one and all.
