6-7min to cool mom points.

so i saw this idea on the internets forever ago...and filed it in my mind under "things moses would like"...then this week moses is learning about sea creatures at school...
a perfect time to make squid dogs. :) they are a snap to make...
 cut hot dogs into one inch sections...
 poke spaghetti noodles through the center...
 ...i used 4-5 noodles (halved) per piece...
 ...boil according to directions on your noodle package...in this case 6-7 minutes...
 and ta-da!  you have squid dogs. 
or food you are giving your kids permission to play with.
either way, it's a win for team mom.
and they were well received.  

and we ended the day with him saying 
i was the goodest mom on earth.

thank you squid dogs
Pin It!

Have you tried octopus dogs? You take a hotdog and with a pair of scissors you cut the bottom longways in half about 3/4 up the dog. Then you cut those halves in half. Boil the hotdogs like normal and the cut ends curl around and look like octopi.

Here is a link for the directions.

That is a great idea! I've got about 21 nieces and nephews that would think that was super fantastic. My next sleep-over with some of them may have to have some squid dogs since my niece Aubrie is OBSESSED with "aminals". And this would be timed fairly well as she's been sharing lots of info about sperm whales lately. Yep, sperm whales.
