I grew up right with my mother teaching me the important things in life such as, "Do not play with your food." So of course, I am teaching my kids the same good lessons. But, every once in a while you just need to bend the rules. Almost a year ago to the day we had squid-dogs which was a lot of fun for the kids. While reading my FamilyFun magazine I decided to try these close cousins, Octopus-dogs.
