Thai take away and our 3 furry guests

Chicken spring rolls with soya and garlic sauce. 60 SEK

Weekdays we usually cook a quick dinner after work and then we try to relax. Those evenings when we’re so exhausted that we just want to sleep we go for something even quicker, take away. Lucky for us we have a Thai take away close by. Nok thai take away, as it’s called, has its kitchen in a truck almost hidden beside a road. The food is excellent but unfortunately, because of the climate, they don’t operate all year. But for now they’re still there and feed us when we’re too tired to cook.

Today was definitly a take away evening and after bringing home the food we sat by the kitchen table and talked about our day at work. Suddenly a roe deer passed by just outside, followed by her two baby deers (photo further down). We’ve seen the roe deers in our garden a lot during the summer, but this is the closest we’ve seen them. And I can’t possible be angry on them, despite the fact that they ate ALL my carrots, ALL my beets and half of the physalis plant earlier this summer. They are too beautiful for that and I love the fact that they come by almost every evening.

    What a great blog you have! I have enjoyed browsing your recipes and creations today, and will continue to do so. I am impressed by your food photography. I would like to take such nice pictures of food I make. Where did you get your photo-light cube kit?

    Lovely photos of the deer and yummy food. If you have problems with deer in your garden, put some blood meal(found at the gardening shops) in between your rows. Be careful not to get it on the plants. It will also help the plants grow. Or you can use human or dog hair. If you go to the beauty salon and have them save the hair for you. Again put between the rows of your plants. Safe way of keeping the deer from your garden. You live in a lovely place by the way.:)

    Dagmar, I love this post. I read you often and found you through Anne’s blog. I too have photos of deer — large and small — on my little art blog, sometimes. We have six fawns who treat my backyard as their nursery. Haha!

    Very fun and helpful blog, Dagmar!
