Autumn is in full bloom...

The days are getting shorter, the breeze colder, the mist heavier... but despite the abrupt change from summer to autumn we had to experience in the last couple of days, I am looking forward to this colorful and beautiful next season..

To welcome this time of the year, I cooked a nice pumpkin soup for my family...one of the most typical dishes of fall...

Here the needed ingredients:
1 butternut squash (about 500gr)
200gr potatoes
1 leek
1-2 garlic cloves
1-2 freshly squeezed oranges
1-2 Liters vegetable bouillon 
Olive oil 
Salt, Pepper and if you like a hint of mild curry powder.

Cut the garlic, leek, potatoes and the pumpkin and sauté it in a bit of olive oil until  everything is soft and golden.

Squeeze the orange juice and deglaze the vegetable mix. Add the bouillon and let it simmer for about 1-2 hours.


As a little tarte extra, I baked parmesan-chips...

Place some parmesan cheese on a tray and grill it in the oven, until golden. Always keep an eye on your parmesan-chips, as they are ready very quickly!

When the soup is finished, mix it well, so that no chunks are left in the soup. Season it with salt, pepper and a pinch of mild curry...

A couple of drops of heavy cream and a drizzle of pumpkin seeds oil makes this soup a wonderfully yummie fall dish...

Enjoy!

Last days of Summer

On the weekend we enjoyed the last days of Summer at a very cute and child-friendly farm, where we had a great lunch and the kids played at the playground and visited the farm animals...
Being outside in the nature when the weather is great is so fulfilling and makes me love my country even more. To me Switzerland with sunshine and warm temperatures is unbeatable...

But have a look yourself:









The menue is simple but perfect for Summer...


The Restaurant is self-service, but the people are friendly and helpful.


Open from April 1st until November 1st, this place is a real gem after a wonderful walk in the nature with your family.


During Summer they also offer an openair cinema... what a great idea!
