Introduction: Caterpillars in Pond Scum
Hot dogs never looked better. Present these to the kids and see what they say. The pond
scum is just ketchup with a drop of blue food color. The dogs should get boiled AND
microwaved (the flavor is 20x better! Try it!)
Follow the diagram, and slice the hot dogs first with the little slices down both sides. These
will end up being the "legs". Don't forget the "tail". Next, roll the hot dog onto it's side
and make one slice thru for the "mouth". Make tiny slices where "teeth" go. Boil them
until they float, then microwave each caterpillar individually for 40 seconds. Serve on a
bed of "pond scum" which is 2Tbsp ketchup and one drop of blue food color.
