    I am giving this five stars because my 2 year old son hasn't eaten any "meals" in four day's. He loved the Octopus dogs and the green seaweed. He had two helpings of noodles and sorry to say, 4 hotdogs (maybe he'll sleep tonight). My dh would rather have me make something different for him on these nights, maybe I'll stick to having them for lunches. Thank you for such a cute idea and something that filled up my picky eater.

    Oh! This is wonderful! Such a cute idea! Ramen is a staple in this household. DD at the grand old age of 21 is far to sophisticated to like such a juvenile treatment, but I'm ready for grandchildren. DH enjoyed it, too. Or at least he slurped it up quite readily. Thanks for posting.
