Scones Part 1

March 23rd, 2015

I have been working on the latest you tube video for our you tube channel, Breakfast with Judy.  Along with my brother in law, Thomas, who has been working with me regarding the editing of the video, we decided to split the footage into Part 1 and Part 2.  This has been a new adventure as I shot this with my cell phone and so that presented some new challenges.  I have to admit at times it doesn’t really look like I am enjoying making the scones, however nothing could be further from the truth.  I just found it challenging to shoot the video, set the camera and remember to smile all at the same time.  I hope you enjoy this latest you tube video, please subscribe to the Breakfast with Judy channel, and as always thank you for watching Breakfast with Judy, at the Lindsay House Bed and Breakfast, Where the joy of living is served daily.

Displaying Opening.jpg

We are so excited to report on our blog that the Grand Opening for Winemaker’s Daughter is Saturday March 14, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. This has been a long time coming, and if I feel that way, you know Jamie and Allen definitely feel that way. It started as an idea on a rambling weekend getaway. An idea was sparked, and ignited into a dream that is coming to fruition. Jamie Lane is indeed the Winemaker’s Daughter; her Father owns Munson Bridge Winery located in Withee, Wisconsin. “Dad is currently bottling wines for us, and eventually we will be bottling our own wines right here at Winemaker’s Daughter. We are starting off with 10 varieties and building from there. Our goal is to offer a casual environment with our tasting room where we will host cooking demos and other fun events. A wine tasting will include 5 wines. You may also enjoy an artisan cheese and charcuterie platter along with your wine. Winemaker’s Daughter is also offering craft beer; flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegars as well as Wisconsin made jellies and dips. It definitely has been a lot of fun and hard work getting to this point and meeting a lot of great people along the way. We are so excited to continue this journey here in Manawa with our business. Jamie and Allen would like to thank everyone who has given them positive comments and for the outpouring of friendship and kindness from the Manawa community as well as the businesses. You can find Winemaker’s Daughter on Facebook, on their website or reach them by phone at 920-596-2992.. Their hours of operation will be Fridays 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Lights, Camera….action?

January 22nd, 2015




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.

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.

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.
