A TIP FROM DEARIE: When the BOYS came recently we studied the OCTOPUS and then enjoyed OCTOPUS for dinner. Take a bun length hot dog and leaving room for a head, cut 8 legs with a serrated knife (8 to exact but 6 legs will do). Add eyes and a mouth. Drop into boiling water (be careful!) and just watch the feet curl upward and a smile form on the mouth. Both 4 year olds enjoy two OCTOPUSES at a meal.
