"When I'm at a Chinese restaurant having a hard time with chopsticks, I always hope that there's a Chinese kid at an American restaurant somewhere who's struggling mightily with a fork."--Rick Budinich

1-3 oz. package beef Ramen noodles
4 hot dogs
5 drops green food coloring
cheese slices, cut in fish shapes
mustard or ketchup

In saucepan, bring 1-1/2 c. water to boil. Add the noodles and
contents of seasoning packet. Boil 3-4 minutes until noodles
are tender. Just before draining, add 5 drops of green food
coloring which transforms the noodles into "green seaweed".

Meanwhile, add four inches of water to a large saucepan and
bring to boil. Cut each hot god lengthwise into eight strips to
within two inches of one end. Drop into boiling water and cook
until heated through. The sliced hot dog strips will curl in the
boiling water to create "tentacles".

To serve, place green Ramen noodles on a plate (seaweed)
and top with curly hot dogs (octopus). Lay fish shaped
pieces of cheese around the edges and draw an octopus face
with ketchup or mustard before eating.
