Or Hot Doctopus. Which ever floats your boat.

Now, this is not a retro recipe. It isn’t a recipe at all. This was just me with 2 leftover turkey dogs, which I didn’t want to eat. So I did the next best thing and played with my food.

Somewhere on the interwebz I saw a photo of a hot dog octopus and I thought “hey, I can do that!” I just cut the bottom half of a hot dog and threw it in some boiling water. There may be some other ‘trick’ to do this, but I didn’t care enough to go online and look.

Ta. Frickin. Da.

So there’s my OctoDog, floating on a piece of seaweed, surrounded by guppies, starfish, and clams.

Isn’t he just the cutest?

Don’t worry, for next week’s sausage fest, I’ll bust out something more involved (Jiffy Cheesefurters, perhaps?) and can you believe that I still have 2 DiS! full dinners that I made but still haven’t posted about? And one of them involves fish balls. FISH. BALLS.Ā 

Keep cool out there, kiddies. And I’ll see you on the flip side.

Oh, gosh, that made me think of this:

and then this, which I have to admit, I just adore. Sing it, you cutie, you!

    I love that posed display shot! I’ve made these for my kids, but they don’t get additional sea life accessories like that šŸ˜€

  3. This needs to be incorporated into a weiner art party of some sort.
