Pommes de Terre!

Glad to see that Potato Pals are now being sold to French Canadians. Here's something for you 'O' Level French speakers out there...

La collection Potato Pals et ses six sympathiques pommes de terre permet de développer l’écoute et la communication orale en anglais. Son approche unique utilisant les rappels et les jeux aide les petits à apprendre et à se souvenir des mots et des phrases utiles. En anglais nord-américain.

Mais est-ce-qu'on peut les manger? (peut-etre avec un peu du beurre et du sel... Bon appetit!)

Now if there had only been a French version of the potato pals when I was a young lad growing up in English Canada, I might actually speak some French today!

Is Sarah French Canadian? Did you just pass up a prime opportunity for a poutine joke?

J'aime les pommes frites avec une Big Mac

Ah, poutine. The fat-free, calorie-wise way to enjoy a spud. How can you enjoy this delicious dish, you wonder?

First, deep fry the tater just as you would a pomme frite. Next, after arranging these fried beauties in a deep dish, cover liberally with cheese curds. And, finally, (la piece de resistance) you will now smother the cheese and spuds with a thick, rich beef gravy. Voila, you have created poutine. Magnifique!

A Quebec delicacy brought to you from a Montreal gal.
