You know the question...Mom what's for dinner? Followed by an answer, any answer, then..."oh, do we have to have that?" So when the question is asked of me, I usually answer "pickled pigs feet." The way I see it, anything that we have is going to be better than pickled pigs feet - no disappointment.
Last night the kids asked again, "Mom what's for dinner?" The reply, "Octopus and Seaweed". While they were a taken back a little that it wasn't the typical pickled pigs feet answer, they weren't fooled at all.
Kids: No, really
Then I served dinner...Octopus and Seaweed...really. A 13 year old girl at church gave me the idea. She said the kids always want her to babysit because she makes them Octopus and Seaweed for dinner. What a great kid's dinner recipe. All you do is cut the bottom of hot dogs - I only use Hebrew National-and drop them in a pan of boiling water. The leg curl up on their own. Then you make ramen and add a little green food coloring. OK, so it's not the most nutritious meal, but it is a fun dinner. Maybe add some sea veggies next time.
