I was remembering this yesterday. While undergoing I.T. training in 2006, I wanted to cook roasted rice (rice + bean cooked together) and I didn't have salt. I went straight to Mama Kafaya room to collect her bottle of salt only to discover that I put detergent in my food when the boiling rice was foaming. I was a terrible experience that night, as I didn't have any other thing to eat and I haven't eaten anything since day break.

I brought the rice and beans down from stove, washed and washed and manage to eat it that way.

I thank God is has become a story of grass to grace.

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.
The soup go make sense

She didn't remember at all until she had wrapped Every thing and put it on fire.
That was how the whole family ate it

That is how the Burkinabes prepare moimoi.

In the middle of cooking, kerosene got finished. Hurriedly went and bought fuel instead of kerosene.
Please, don't ask me what happened next.






After refilling, I started looking for matches o. Went to my neighbour to borrow, she came out and perceived the fuel fumes... lol. She asked, who's dealing with fuel around?
That's when my senses came back to factory setting.

Mine was cameroun pepper. I cooked indomie and added three 'ten naira' own. I did not know what made me experiment with three, but i think what pushed me was how beautiful a cameroun peppered indomie looked like. But this one was truly a definition of not all that glitters is gold.
I swallowed the first, second and third spoon successfully. It was when the fourth hit my throat that i discovered tears was slithering down my cheeks. I started feeling hot all of a sudden, i pulled off my shirt, seems it got worse. Then i commot boxers, no improvement. I now said let me go outside to receive fresh air if it will be better, no way. I con dey ask myself, is this how people go mad?
Well i took a very cold bath and i got really better. So, at the end of the day i went back to finish the food. It looked so beautiful.
What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger right?

In case of next time, find kolanut and chew small.

Cooked beans while sleepy. I can't forget that day in a hurry. Prepped beans in my kitchen and laid on the bed to sleep. I was starving and sleepy at the same time and knew I'd have nightmares if I skipped dinner.


Not too long, my entire apartment was engulfed in smoke from the burning beans and I had no idea. I had not slept for two straight days over an exam I was preparing for and I had not the faintest idea what was happening in my kitchen.

My neighbours noticed the heavy smoke filtering from my apartment, banged on my door repeatedly, only for me to wake up drowsy, walked to the door and told them I was doing it on puporse, then went back to sleep!

My kitchen was near flames that day. I luckily got up later when the noise was much outside my apartment. My neighbours were staging a break in as they suspected all wasn't well. Strangely, I got up and went to the kitchen, put out the gas then went back to sleep.

I slept through the smoke, didn't choke or cough for a minute. I couldn't believe my eyes the next morning. The burnt beans was rock solid burnt in the pot that I had to throw the pot away.

Burnt offering...

As it was in the days of Noah.

[And] the odour of the sacrifice pleased the Lord. Gen. 8:21

I felt there wasn’t much salt to the rice and kept adding salt till I felt satisfied. Rice was ready and everyone had to saved their lives first instead of dying from too much salt in the liver. cheesy

Too many I can’t remember them all now .

I would have eaten that thing with all that salt in it without flinching one bit.

That's my specialty.

Not healthy at all.
Will catch up with you later in life.

Some have trained their taste buds now to only tolerate little or no salt.
