It’s been a summer filled with deer sightings daily.  Today after work there were two more sweet little surprises in our back yard.

Enjoying dinner.

So peaceful and relaxed.

But then…there’s a noise

Oh DEER11

It’s those darned dogs!

Oh DEER4

Might want to get a move on. If they come out, there will be trouble.

Oh DEER3

Don’t have to rush, just slowly, tauntingly stroll away. 

Oh DEER6

One last mouthful.  

These babies are adorable, aren’t they?  

Oh DEER5

I just wish there weren’t so many of them AND they didn’t like our yard so much.

VEGETARIAN TEFF Stew

Another great grain recipe using Bob’s Red Mill Ancient Grains Teff: mild flavor, nutty, lots of calcium, protein, iron and fiber.

A long ingredient list but very easy to make. Put on your apron and let’s get cooking.

  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Teff
  • 2 TBS tomato paste

    Sheri saw the 2 babies in your yard too. She said they went under the trees when the dogs were out playing.

      My folks have deer sightings almost every day. I love seeing the little ones with the spots though – just not anywhere near the roads or any of mom’s new cherry trees. 🙂

      As for me – well it’s probably not a surprise that I see way more rabbits then I would like. At least we managed to remove quite a few so it’s been much better.

        So, so cute! We’ve seen more fawns than normal around here this spring–it’s a real treat! The stew sounds really great, especially now that the mornings have been cooler!
