My neighbour used cockroach to cook beans for the family. He was not aware as the cockroach died inside the bottle of palm oil that he used for the beans.

And he cooked the food in the dark o. It was while they were eating the food that one of his brothers asked where the crayfish he is eating came from. Mind you, they didn't use crayfish o. (the brother had already eaten part of the cockroach in the food).

The rest is history.

while doing Diploma at Unijos, exactly the day Stella obasanjo died, I think Bellview plane crash occurred same period, I was watching the news and lo I had to boil beans using electric heater to conserve kero, I didn't know wen I slept off. the bowl I was boiling the beans was plastic, the water dried and the bowl caught fire and the fire reached my mattress. the smoke from the mattress was nearly suffocating me, I just woke up managed to off the switch and ran outside around 11pm....it was a miracle, God saved me that day

A week after my wedding, I decided to cook my first soup. I chose Egusi, I thought well it shouldn't be that bad.

First mistake was to wash the Egusi before grinding. Second I grounded it wet.
I became confused after that. I poured the Egusi inside a well bleached red oil.

To end the story, I had black Egusi in my pot.

Hubby just came in and said let's go and eat out. grin
Your hubby must be a gentle man.

This was an experience with my late dad in the late 80's. My mother travelled to Ibadan from our base in Kano. My sisters wanted to make dinner that evening but my dad want to impress us with bitter leaf soup.

The food was ready but no one was able to eat because my dad did not wash the bitter leaf, he just washed and cook like a normal vegetable.

He was embarrassed and went out to buy us food.

Like around 20yrs back, me and my igede friends together with my immediate junior sister went to osun river in our town to fetch all those tiny river snails(not the flat one oo, the round one... we normally called it kòrògbíngbín)

We brought the little we could fetch home and we tried to make fire on the normal fire spot called ADIRO in yoruba.

We succeeded in making the fire but finding the pot to use in frying it became a mirage as all pots were filled with one content or the other.

We had successfully stole the palm oyel and salt(dos are d only ingredients needed grin ) but we couldn't locate a single pot to carry out our assignment.

then we resorted into using a plastic, we poured an oyel and put the plastic on the fire....gbam!!! in a second we couldn't find the plastic, we didn't even know if it was stolen from the fire or it got burnt grin but we saw it wen it caught fire grin


After some minutes of rumination, Orshom(my igede nigga) went to his mama room to turn away the content in one of his mama's pot., we washed it as we could and put on fire.

we have bn hearing that palm oyel needed to b made hot before tins should b added, den we tried to do our own.

as we saw that smoke is already coming from the pot(now we had added oyel) den we put all the korogbingbins inside... vooooom ..everything catch fire inside the pot grin

Oku babanla eni to maa lo so potu kale cheesy

After everything got burnt patapata, the fire quenched..CHAIIII OUR POT DON TURN TO BITUMEN..

We tried to was it but na lie, e no gree wash.

If u do dis, u know the next tin African parent would do to u naw grincheesy

My nyash no go forget that day even if i do.
Extremely funny grin

I wanted to bleach palm oil for ofada sauce only for me to see fire on the frying pan. By the time I covered ne opened it,the oil had turned black n I couldn't use it again. It's so painful cos that was the remaining oil at home then. Since then ,av learnt not to over bleach palm oil.

My roommate and some of her friends went to hire shisha pot from a friend and brought it to my room and we started popping. Everybody was in cloud 9 and I was feeling hungry, so I went to prepare noodles. Common noodles, took almost 1 hour to dry as if it was beans I was cooking. I could even hear the pot making sound like am cooking rice or beans. The noodles turned to something else. We still ate sha. Las Las Highness na bad thing grin cheesy

Haha... I concur! when high, anything is edible and tastes better.

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

I used kerosene to cook indomie thinking it was was water. The indomie was scenting very nicely mixed with the odor of kerosene at the same time. It was very difficult for me to throw away the indomie because it looked so delicious, but I had no choice than to throw it away.

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.

One happened when I was 10 and still learning how to cook white rice.
I got the bright idea to disinfect the white rice with a capful of Dettol to kill germs. My family ate it like that.


This recent one was done by our HOUSEBOY. The same pot he used to boil domgoyaro(neem) leaves in this coronavirus period. He just washed it like that and used it to cook jollof rice without boiling the pot in Orange peel first. Omo, that was how 6 cups of jollof rice became bitter like agbo, nobody could eat it. It was painful.
