Bento Recipe: Octopus-infested rice

SpirallyA great side dish for Halloween, or any time you want to gross somebody out.

What you need:

    Tentacles from a baby octopus or two
    Cooked rice

Boil the baby octopi for a few minutes, then cut off the tentacles just below the webbing. I usually harvest the tentacles for this when I'm making octopus fritters. Cook the rice, then pack it loosely in your lunch box. Stick tentacles into the rice, base downward, so it looks like they're reaching up out of the rice.
