Life experience – category Coconut

Check another one off for life experiences.  I opened a coconut last week.

I’ve always avoided them at the grocery store because I thought it would be too much of a hassle to open one and it turns out I WAS RIGHT.  However, as I have small children, I couldn’t refuse their request to try.

My tools were a drill, a hammer and a ziplock bag.  The hammer worked best (sorry downstairs neighbors) but it was very hard to get out any coconut “meat.”  Of course, you have to remember that I bought this coconut in Sweden, so perhaps it was not quite as fresh as it could be.

Anyway, it’s checked off the list now.  Done.  From now on, I buy my coconut milk in a can.
