Centipede Hotdogs

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

The idea behind this is pretty cool.  The first time I saw it on the internet I wondered how they did it.  Then I discovered that it is the easiest thing ever to feed your kids.  My boys thought it was pretty weird (but a cool weird).  While it is a fun idea, personally I didn't think it tasted that great, but kids like it.    (Plus I absolutely HATE centipedes which made it even more cool for my boys.)

For a centipede, break your spaghetti noodles in half and then thread as many as you can through the middle of the hotdog. You can easily let your kids help with this!

 For a little octopus, cut the hotdogs into bite size piece, and then thread 3-4 noodles through the middle.

 Meanwhile, boil some water.  Drop the hotdogs into the boiling water and boil until the spaghetti is cooked.
 For the octopus, you could even dye the water green or blue.  It might color the spaghetti.  I didn't think about it at the time.
 But I did mix some with a Pesto sauce to make it kind of green. (And make it taste better for me.)

Cook some other spaghetti and then add spaghetti sauce and serve your centipedes to your children.  
The whole idea kind of grossed me out, but the kids liked it.
