Play with your food: funky soup!

I don't even know what to call this one.. suggestions?

Over the last few years I've been exposed to the idea of sticking spaghetti through uncooked hotdogs or sausages, as a way to amuse kids (or the adults who are feeding them). Well we don't need no kids to play with food!

I cut up some nice-ish sausages and jabbed spaghetti through them:
then I dropped them into soup I made up (canned tomatoes, chopped-up onion, carrot and celery, some spices):
And as expected, they cooked into noodle-sausage goodness!
It reheated just fine and made for amusing lunches that week. (well, I was privately amused; I'm not claiming there was general hilarity.)


  1. Did the noodles continue to pass through the sausages through cooking and reheating?

  2. @John, yep! They swelled up enough in the cooking to stay securely in.

  3. Awesome. That would lead to much playing with food.
