Mary Grace:  Mommy, what's for dinner?

Me:  Well, I can either make "rotten" potatoes (au gratin potatoes) and sausage or sausage and spicy rice (Zatarains Jambalaya).

Mary Grace:  That's not really much of a choice.  It's just potatoes and rice.

Me:  ...

Mary Grace:  Can we have hot dogs?

(You know, because those are fundamentally different from the turkey smoked sausage that goes in the rotten potatoes and sausage/spicy rice in some way.)

Me:  Is there anything else you'd like to say on the topic of dinner?

Mary Grace:  Mommy, "au" is underlined red.

Me:  It's fine.  The computer doesn't speak French.
