crisscross applesauce
 adj.— «The youngsters no longer fidget during circle time. Instead, they quietly sit with legs neatly folded in front of them—”crisscross applesauce” in the parlance of preschool—and participate in the lessons disguised as songs and games.» —“New Preschool Off To Good Start” by Daniela Altimari in Middletown Hartford Courant (Connecticut) Sept. 21, 2006.
