  1. Put the hot-dogs in crock pot, cover and start on high temperature setting, DO NOT ADD WATER, and forget about them for the next 2 to 3 hours, time enough to get everything else ready. Reduce heat to minimum to keep warm until time to serve. That’s it!

Lesters’ Tips and Tricks

Cutest squids for Bento boxes

Perfect for a fun lunch or for snacking. All you need are either cocktail wieners or regular hot-dogs cut in 2. With a pointed knife cut the ‘legs’ of the squids by slicing the wiener, lengthwise 3 or 4 times on one end (cut end for half wieners). Heat cut wieners in a microwave oven on high, 20 to 45 seconds (for 4 pieces), in a non-stick skillet or in the oven, and watch them morph into little squids! Serve them on a plate or in a Bento box with sticky rice balls, cut vegetables, grapes, and your kids favourite dipping sauce.
