spoon meat

Oooooooh spoon meat!

The semi-gelatinous, delicately chewy white lining of the immature coconut.

There's a hammer and a long nail by the kitchen sink.
A glass of cloudy liquid at my side.

Shreds of husk line the sink and cover the countertop.

I'll clean up in a moment, but for now.....

Spoooon meeeeeat,
soooooo sweeeeet,

on a tropically overcast day.

I swear, you've just made me fall in love with coconut. (And I've never cared for the stuff! Granted, all I've ever tried is the plastic-y stuff that ends up on kids' birthday cakes...)

Happy Sunday!

Mmm... coconut milk...

I once read that coconut milk can be used as an emergency substitute for plasma. No joke.
But there's never any leftover at my house for that type of application, so I guess I'll just have to keep wondering!

Hi Taza,

I read that too (plasma thing). Then I saw it in a memoir of a Vietman medic who used it when plasma was not avialable before the medivac arrived. Not a pleasant read.

I prefer reading spoooon meat, sooo sweeet :)
