Mine was damn embarrassing.
My first day after work, I went home with the guy I was to stay with.
He told me to prepare noodles.
A female colleague that resumed with me same day, said she would prefer I put a little gnut oil, while pointing to a liquid in a bottle on one corner of the kitchen.
Mind you, it was getting dark, so I just took it and poured.
Guys, na so kerosene take enter indomie o cry

Our liquid soap was golden yellow, same colour as vegetable oil.
I was gisting and distracted, so I poured more 'oil' in the stew. I noticed the stew was 'foaming', then I realised I used liquid soap for the stew.

Back then during my NYSC at Calabar, I was cooking Eguisi soup and my neighbor dashed me plenty pumpkin leaf (ugu). I decided to use all the vegetable in order not to waste any because I don't have refrigerator to preserve the vegetable. The Eguisi soup automatically turned to vegetable soup.

I was somewhere yesterday when a lady was asking her Boyfriend whom she came to visit for fish and crayfish to prepare Chicken.
I swear to God I'm not laying.

Somewhere in Abuja- Kubwa to be precise.

My undergrad days. I wanted to cook Jollof rice. I had turned the g.oil inside the pot and proceeded to add other ingredients tin tomatoes etc.
But it wasn't giving out the sizzling sound. I went back to check carefully and saw I was using kerosene as g.oil.
Had to start all over.
