Eh-Pehl-Sihs


One night when Alex was about four, he asked for some applesauce at dinner. I asked him how daddy (who's French) says it.

He replied, "Eh-pehl-sihs.” 

We burst out laughing. 

Actually, it's compote des pommes. While this might not be the most sophisticated French food around, these packets are a very popular after school snack, and I buy them frequently. I buy them now, that is. There was a time when they were banned in my house because they were just all too fun.... Give them a good squeeze, and splat.

Just like those little square juice boxes from the U.S. that squirt everywhere as soon as you hand the open box (liquid grenade?) to your clean child, these probably appear to be a better idea than they really are...
