OLE"OATMEAL PIE"w/a coconut monkey!
Nancy J. Patrykus
Occasionally she would let me help.The later awards, was worth it! So here is the recipe she used...from her old church cookbook. Actually it could be called oatmeal-coconut pie! This pie uses 1/2 cup of each in this recipe! Plus,Grandpa always made a monkey face string holder from 1/2 of the coconut shell,
and sold them.
Tips to open a coconut, go to:
Some times grandma made her own
coconut chips and flakes.
What a treat! to chew on a hunk of coconut!
Grandpa drilled three holes in the coconut, for eyes and a mouth. Where the string will come out.
and drained the milk into a bowl,
to drink later.
Then he sawed the coconut shell in half.
Put a ball of string in the face half, glued a piecse of cardboard on the back,making a string hole for hanging on the kitchn wall!
That lil ole monkey face, always had string ready for grandma to use.
