Kids in the Kitchen

Lately I’ve been feeling as if I don’t have anymore ‘good’ ideas for this co-hosted Kids in the Kitchen series.  I was chatting with Paula (from Frosted Fingers) about how I was feeling and she linked me to her Squid Dogs post.  I thought it was BRILLIANT!!  So I purchased everything we’d need to make them this week and Wednesday evening, the kids got to work!

Making Squid Dogs |
Break dry spaghetti noodles in half. Then stick 5-6 noodles through the 1″ hot dog pieces. Throw them in a pot of boiling water until the noodles are cooked. Drain & serve.

I served their Squid Dogs with mustard & ketchup.  James seemed to enjoy them, but Colin was NOT a fan.  My husband must have thought they were decent because he ate as many as he could!  They all agreed the Squid Dogs needed cheese or a cheese sauce to make them a little better.  {I don’t eat hot dogs, so I didn’t even try them.}

Squid Dogs are very easy to make.

Have you made squid dogs … or would you?

Did you have fun in the “kitchen” this week?  Did you try a new food or a new kid friendly restaurant?  Did your little ones use their snacks to count to 10?  We invite you to share your experiences, photos, stories or recipes that include your #kidsinthekitchen!

Come join me and my co-hosts, Melinda at Look What Mom FoundPaula at Frosted Fingers,  Lisa of HooplaPaloooza and Sarah of Play2LearnWithSarah, each week by linking up a post, new or old, that features the theme Kids in the Kitchen.  It doesn’t matter what you are doing as long as you are doing it together, enjoying it and learning something along the way.

Don’t have a blog?  That’s ok!  Just share an Instagram photo or Facebook update.

    I really like Squid Dogs and that is an awesome idea to make with my niece when she comes over and I babysit. It is such a cute way to eat these hot dogs!

    I’ve never thought of this before but what a cute idea/recipe! My grandson would love to make this because he loves spaghetti and hot dogs!
