I found this photo on Pinterest and thought it was the MOST ingenious idea I've seen in a long time. Seriously, I can just picture the child looking on the kitchen counter at some spaghetti and hot dogs and sticking the pasta pieces into the hotdogs thinking they are tinker toys or the like. And then mom, wanting to be frugile, throws everything into a boiling pot of water. INGENIOUS! And I can already hear the giggles from around the dinner table when I put a plate of pasta and franks in front of my family!
