Announcing event ~ Lets cook with Coconut

The coconut palm (also, cocoanut), Cocos nucifera, is a member of the family Arecaceae (palm family). The term coconut can refer to the entire coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit, which, botanically, is a drupe, not a nut. Coconuts are found throughout the tropic and sub tropic area, it is known for its great versatility as seen in the many domestic, commercial, and industrial uses of its different parts. Coconuts are part of the daily diets of many people. Coconuts are different from any other fruits because they contain a large quantity of "water" and when immature they are known as tender-nuts or jelly-nuts and may be harvested for drinking. When mature, they still contain some water and can be used as seed nuts or processed to give oil from the kernel, charcoal from the hard shell and coir from the fibrous husk.

    I had expressed my doubt on linking this event with my entry.. but not yet got any response. Just needed your help on this. Do u want me to add it in my blog? coz when i upload the pic it asks me only to enter the name and link of the recipe along wth my mail id. But it does not prompt anywhere to link it with this event..I absolutely have no clue how to go bout it..
