    winkki's Note:

    A fun way to liven up that ever-present kids' food. Great for bad weather days, cranky kids (or moms!), birthday parties, or just because. My daughters think I'm really cool when I make these for them. :o)

      These are so much fun! I atually make them over the bon fire. Same sort of idea without the boiling part. I cut them the same, then poke a long stick through the "head" part. The legs still curl up. My kids love them!

      I've been wanting to try this for a while. My daughter isnt' yet 3 so I wasn't sure if she would like it. I made one cut on the first side but two on the 2nd side. (it was a larger sized dog). That way I got 6 legs which looked pretty realistic. She ate it all as well as the plain noodles that I served smothered in ketchup.

      I actually have this recipe in a kid's cookbook my MIL bought. Only difference is that it suggested using ramen noodles as an "ocean" and making a mustard face on the octopus.
