Toasted Marshmallows (Friday's English)

You know marshmallows, right? And you know toast, right?

But do you know toasted marshmallows??

I made some toasted marshmallows tonight. I went on a small trip with my family to Gatlinburg. (It sounds like a German town, doesn't it. But it's in Tennessee?!?!) It's a touristy* town (like Kamakura?? No, not like Kamakura. Well, anyway...)

Actually, we just went THROUGH Gatlinburg, to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. For trout fishing, of course. They are "wild" trout -- not stocked like most places. (In English, one way we use the verb "to stock" is for raising fish at a "hatchery" and moving them to a river, where fishermen catch them -- so stocked fish are not "wild" fish, or "natural").

It was a nice trip, beautiful nature, and important time with family.

Well, hopefully I'll be writing in Japanese soon, from Japan. Until then, everybody enjoy the fall weather and go toast some marshmallows over the campfire tonight! ^_^

*: maybe #2 definition... ;-)
