So I decided to make something special for the kids for dinner tonight.
I told them it was a secret so while they were watching TV I prepared these:
The kids were impressed, and had no idea how I got hot dogs right in the middle of spaghetti like that.
It's easy, and kids can be easy to impress sometimes.
Step 1: Get a pot of salted water on the stove and get it heating up to boiling., get your tomato sauce in a separate pot on simmer.
Step 2: Take Spaghetti pieces and poke them through the uncooked hot dogs:
Expect some to break and that's fine, just keep pushing the rest through, and you can also make different size monsters by evening them off.
Step 3: Place them into the boiling water and cook until the spaghetti is done, nice and floppy.
Step 4: Drain, strain, and place some on plates.
Step 5: Add the tomato sauce, serve, and get accolades for preparing a cool meal for your kids.
Step 6. Eat while you bask in the praise and adulation. Treasure the moment as you realize the teenage years are coming up fast.
