Last weekend I returned from a few more weeks of travel with beautiful Indian summer weather in Canada. On Saturday, I arrived back in Switzerland, a little past the first snow of the season (in the higher areas above 800 m). Beautiful weather on Sunday made the Säntis mountain in Eastern Switzerland a perfect afternoon excursion, enjoying the views of six countries and getting hungry for skiing.

Returning to Switzerland I was again faced with a number of open blog posts including the one or the other summerly recipe. There are (unfortunately) no more peaches available in my house otherwise I would run right to my balcony, fire up the BBQ and make this salad. The grilled peaches are delicious. So sweet. I could eat them all year round.
