Octopus on the Rocks
Try this great meal time diversion:
Slice a hot dog into quarters lengthwise. Make the cuts about 3/4 of the way up the dog so that one end has four pieces and the other end is whole. Boil the hot dog and the pieces will curl. Set the "octopus" on top of baked beans to make "Octopus on the Rocks!"
Don't forget to make little eye holes before cooking with the tip of a knife or a toothpick--it really adds to the look.
