Today I received one of those in an email. And the email has nothing to do with writing or writers - except it was, obviously, written.
The email came from Chef Glenn of BackpackingChef.com. This is the place where I learned about making bark and other handy snacks in my dehydrator; no, I'm not planning a long backpacking trip where I need to be concerned about the weight of my body's fuel for the trek. But I do need some portable foods for those long days where I'd rather not have to go to a restaurant all the time or my schedule changes and I need food fuel on hand.
The word was right there, near the top of the email. Perfect. And, no, I don't really know how to say it. But here on the page you don't have to listen to my lack of accent mimicability!
Here it is - my new word, yes, it's German:
... a natural or recreational area nearby where one can relax.
See? Isn't that a very good word for where I am? Perfect. Thank you, Chef Glenn - for your recipes and the word.
