Octopus Hot Dogs and Seaweed Zucchini

Everyone should want to have fun with food.

Personally, I think everyone should make an octopus-shaped hot dot at least once in their life.  And if you have kids, they – more than likely – love hot dogs.  So:  problem solved.  Go and make yourself some octopuses for dinner.  Or octopi.  Either way.

And to get extra creative, dab on some mustard eyes and throw them in a bed of zucchini seaweed:

Okay, I know:  my “seaweed” looks a little mushy.  That’s because I shredded the zucchini kinda small.  Looked a little more like angel hair than linguine.  Still, it gets the point across.

To make the hot dogs, I sliced through them before cooking them.  You could them boil or microwave them.

To make the zucchini, I shredded it, and then threw it in a frying pan with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder for a few minutes.

Granted, my kids were far too excited about the hot dogs to pay much attention to the zucchini, but they did eat a little.  If you’d prefer, you could always serve the dogs over some spaghetti that you cooked with a little green food coloring instead.
