Octopus & Sea Weed for Lunch!

I asked my niece if she wanted octopus and sea weed for lunch and she looked at me like I was crazy!  But when she saw them, she got super excited.  This is one of those fun ideas that's been floating around forever and it's still a kid-pleaser!

Slice your hot dogs as shown in the picture and drop into boiling water.  When the hot dogs are done, the legs will curl.

For the sea weed noodles, simply add green food coloring into the ramen noodles as they cook.  The water absorbed into the noodles will turn them green.  Add the seasoning packet, mix well.  Drain.

Set each octopus on a bed of sea weed and add a ketchup face with a toothpick dipped in ketchup.
