We got a little creative with dinner tonight. We had octopus, seaweed, and drank seawater.
Obviously my mustard-drawing skills leave something to be desired. . .
Just a couple drops of food coloring made everything so much more fun. I’m not a big fan of ramen noodles because they’re so high in sodium, but we had three cups of them. What I ended up doing was opening the cups into a mesh colander to sift out the powdered boullion. Then I rinsed the noodles a little bit before cooking them to remove a bit more of the seasoning. When I cooked them, I dumped in a can of mixed veggies (frozen would have been better but we’re out at the moment) before adding the green food coloring. Our glasses of milk all got a couple drops of blue coloring and was renamed seawater.
S and I argued the whole time I made supper – he kept trying to convince me I was cooking hot dogs. I kept telling him that no, we were having octopus for supper. It sure was fun!

How cute & creative!! 🙂 Little S will remember those moments because you took the time to make it a special dinner. That’s awesome Melody.
Melody, I love making these little octopus with my son. We always enjoy eating them one tentacle at a time.
Ginger, Sarah, and Amber, thanks! Amber, the pasta with pesto sounds really neat. Thanks for the idea!
If you like pesto you can get a really good seaweed affect by having pasta w/ pesto 🙂
Thanks for the reminder, it’s been awhile since we have have octopus and seaweed!!!
What a super cute idea.
This is such a grand idea, I will have to incorporate this in a future meal
