perfect pre-hurricane dinner: Octopuses and Shells

Aren’t I a genius?

pre-hurricane dinner

Well, maybe not a genius, but after chasing cows, securing for the storm, baking cupcakes and the Tall man working late tonight seemed like a good idea to me!

2 boxes kraft mac and cheese shells (plus milk and butter as per directions) 

1 package Hebrew National beef hot dogs. (mustard optional for eyes)

1.  Put a pot of salted water on to boil.

2. While the water is boiling cut the  hot dogs in half  vertically so you have 2 pieces, then slit them half way up making 4 legs and then cut each leg in half.


3  Once water reaches a boil throw the hot dogs in for 3 minutes, watching the legs curl and stirring gently, then remove using tongs or a slotted spoon and set aside.

4.  Cook the Mac and cheese according to package directions.

5. Serve and enjoy!
