Will spoil you for the real thing.

Poke two holes in end of Coconut, Drain. If cloudy or pinkish fluid, discard coconut. One of these was a spoiled coconut. But hey they are only 1.29 and you can get a refund.

Bake in oven 325 for 30 minutes.

Hit the Coconut a few times with a hammer, and take out the meat.

Grind the coconut or fine shred it or put it in blender with a little hot water.

Cover with hot water and stir. Let sit ten minutes.

Run it through a cheesecloth and strainer setup.

You got Coconut Milk!

SUCCOTASH (in lemon butter sauce with mint)

SUCCOTASH is a traditional Thanksgiving vegetable dish, and this is my take on the classic. I borrowed some ideas from ZAYTINYA's. A great restaurant in DC.

12 oz bag frozen organic CORN
12 oz bag frozen organic LIMA BEANS
1/4 stick organic grass-fed BUTTER
1/4 cup chopped MINT
SALT, PEPPER to taste

Cook the Corn and Lima Beans in water and drain well
In another pan, melt the butter. Stir in the vegetables, drench with
juice from the lemons, add Mint and stir gently. Serve.

Construction in Wisconsin starts early, here are the forms for a cement slab
to be poured. This is going to be a large garage for our Realty Business. You
can see the bobcat in the background that did the digging. Looks like a nice job.
Ella's Deli. Open faced sandwiches, potato salad, pound cake. Here I am with a New York Cherry scoop in a cup. A great place to take kids.

At the lake, the ice is melted. Grass is greening up but trees are still
bare. Basketball, frisbee, every once in a while the sun breaks through today.
In a week or so, people will be out here getting a tan. Good for their Vitamin D level!
