I know this sounds simple, but the kids love it! Serve up some steamed baby carrots to "healthify" it a little!
Sorry I don't have a picture, but I think you'll get the idea if you use your imagination!
4 hot dogs
1 package ramen noodles
4 drops green food coloring
Prepare noodles with flavoring. Drain off water. Add food coloring, divide among 4 plates.
Bring to boil 1/2 pan of water in a medium sized saucepan. Lay the hot dogs out on a cutting board. Cut in 1/2 lengthwise, leaving 1 inch whole at one end. Rotate 1/4 turn, and slice lenthwise again through both layers. Now be careful not to break or cut off any legs, but take each quarter and split it in 1/2 lengthwise again, so there are now 8 "legs." Repeat with each hot dog. Throw hot dogs, one at a time, into the boiling water. Cook for a minute or so, until the octopus curls up. remove carefully with a slotted spoon, drain, place on seaweed noodles.
If you're really crafty, you can draw a face on the octopus with ketchup or mustard.
