She (in the kitchen prepping supper):  Do you want me to lyonaisse these potatoes?

What I heard:  Do you want me to lionize these potatoes?

What I thought:  What the ??

I:  You need to speak some language I understand if you want a response.  What the heck does a lion have to do with cooking?

She:  el-wye-oh-en-en-a-eye-ess-ee.  Fry them with onions.

I:  Fix them however you like them.

What I did: To the online dictionary.  Yes.  "lyonnaise" to fry potatoes with bits of onions.
Who knew?  Well, BBBH knew!
