Bento Lunch #247 : Octodog Bento

Good Day! I have not made octodog for a while and this is by request.

Here is the tutorial :
1) Cut the hotdog into half
2) Using a knife, make a slit in the middle and almost 3/4 way down
3) Make a few more additional slits till you get 8 legs
4) Boil the hotdogs in a pot of boiling water and the tentacles will start curling up.
5) Remove from heat after a few minutes, let them cool down and I used food safe marker for the eyes and mouth.

    1. Ming, thank you so much for your kind comment :) It is not working but will keep trying with the reward and bribe for this week! Worse case scenario, have to puree and sneak into his foods.

  4. I made octodogs for dinner tonight! And while I didn't have the cute little hats, I did buy some food markers over the weekend. The kids LOVED them. I actually let the, play with their food during dinner!
