A couple weeks ago I was staying with my Grandparents with 2 of my other cousins. One day we went grocery shopping and came across this coconut on sale, we decided to get it and see what it looked like inside and better yet taste it. So when we got home my grandpa drilled 3 holes in the eyes of the coconut and we drained out the coconut milk. The milk, we decided, tasted rather bland. Then he sawed it in half and rinsed it out. This is what it looked like. (see picture.) We used a knife to shave off some of the coconut (the white stuff) and ate it. We decided that dipping it in sugar made it taste a lot better. : ] But all in all it tasted like coconut, which is one of my favorite foods. And I Then after we cleaned all the coconut out of the shell (it came out pretty easily) I sanded off the outside and a bit inside and use it as a bowl. I think it's the coolest bowl in the world. What do you think?

What a cool idea! A coconut bowl. It would be great to use as a vase for flowers, too. Just put in a cup or glass to help steady the flowers.
Or do you use it for eating? Does it give the food a coconut flavor?

Yeah! The first few things I ate out of it did taste a bit like coconut, but after I washed it a couple times it didn't really anymore. Maybe I'll bring it up next weekend, we'll see.

You're right, that's pretty cool!

Dagmar, I tagged you on my blog, but you don't have to do it if you don't want to. It doesn't really have anything to do with cooking, though.
