When you have children you know that you have to feed them every. day. It becomes more breakfasts, lunches and dinners than I care to count! When the last thing that I want to do is make lunch or dinner I end up making a simple sandwich or I microwave some chicken nuggets Very uninspiring, like my mood!
What is even more uninspiring is a bunch of cut up hot dog. Wouldn't you agree? An easy way to add inspiration to a quick and easy meal is by turning a pile of meat into a bunch of bugs.
What you need:
Candy Eyes (I got these in the baking section at Safeway)
Boil your hot dog for about 8 minutes. Then cut your hot dog in half lengthwise and then into small pieces.
Then put the ketchup into a bag and add on a small hole icing tip (is that what you call them?) and pipe on the legs, etc. I did try just squirting it out of the ketchup bottle, no bueno.
Seriously, this is easy. In this picture is my first attempt. And I did it with 2 toddlers hovering over me wanting to touch it.
You can get pretty creative with your bug building.
Post some pics of your own bugs!
