Every week word-lovers post new words they’ve discovered while reading. It’s called Wondrous Words Wednesday and was created by Kathy at Bermuda Onion’s Weblog.
This new-to-me word came from Norwegian by Night by Derek B. Miller
karbonade: There is a half-eaten karbonade sandwich that he doesn’t like on the paper plate cradled in his lap.
My dictionary did not have this word, but online I found it in the bab.la Norwegian-English translation. Believe it or not, a carbonade is a hamburger.

That’s all for me this week. I’m leaving today for Portland for our family’s holiday celebration. I’ll check in from time to time in the next few weeks, but I won’t be back to regular posting until sometime in January.
