Pinterest Challenge January: Hot Dog Spaghetti…yum

Fun Food for Kids: Hot Dog Spaghetti

For me this idea goes all the way back to the beginning of Pinterest, it was for sure one of the first things I ever pinned. Well, I finally got around to trying it this week and the kids LOVED it! I told them I was making “hot buttered squid” and everyone got all worked up about it and refused to eat it. Needless to say they were pretty happy when they saw it was a dish that combined 2 of their favourite foods; pasta and hot dogs. (I’m having flashes of Big Bang Theory here…wasn’t this Sheldon’s favourite dish??)

It’s as easy as it looks:

  1. Cut hot dogs into bit sized pieces
  2. Poke hot dogs with spaghetti noodles
  3. Boil according to pasta package directions
  4. Season as desired

I didn’t want to use a red sauce on it because it would hide the food and I figured no sauce would be pretty bland so I simply buttered the noodles and sprinkled it with lots of Parmesan cheese. The monsters ate every last bite and were disappointed there wasn’t more. A winner for Friday Family Fun Nights!

It was a little (messy) tricky to eat, but they worked it out :)








***It doesn’t even have to be about Pinterest per se. I mean, we were all already out there on the Internet researching stuff and looking up fun ideas before Pinterest existed. Then Pinterest came along and provided an awesome and easy way to organize all the time we waste surfing the Web into one tidy little package. So now, we go and ‘Pin’ all these amazing ideas on Pinterest, but how many do we actually follow through on? My challenge is to follow through with and document at least 1 each month (baby steps, right?)***
