Hi everyone this is my first post as well. I thought i would show you what is now my nephews favorite meal. He is way into things that live in water so I found a wat to make hot dogs into a octopus.

This is what you will need, hot dogs, mac n cheese, and gold fish crackers.

First take the hot dog and slice it in half, leaving one inch at the top NOT CUT. Then slice in half again on the other side. Now you have 4 "legs". Take each one of them and cut them in half now making 8.

Now put your octopus in the pan covering it in water. Cook like normal.

After you make your mac n cheese place the octopus on the mac n cheese, sprinkle the gold fish around, and you have a great wasy meal kids will love. You can use ketchup or mustard for the eyes or simply poke a hole in it with a tooth pick or skew.

If you have any questions let me know I will help.

Also if there is a certain craft you are looking for out of my list here tell me I will do a how to for you. Time out doll, princes, ballerina, or wedding invite cup cake topper, candy bar holder purse, chalk board gift bag, tons more just ask, :) Thanks everyone enjoy

I totally grew up with hot dogs and macaroni. This is way cuter and maybe I can get my picky nieces to eat it.
