As a young boy, I was always careless about what kinds of foods I funnel into my tummy. I really could not determine why this was so because my brothers were completely different from me. They were more like proper and calm children. I was a bit weird. However, I do not regret some of my actions as they bring laughable memories to mind.
One of such memories of my escapades is how I ate foods that were tagged weird by many observers……for me…I was just enjoying myself. Lets checkout the top three of the food combination that made my weirdest list.
Garri has always been one of my favourite foods even till this very moment. In the early 90s, my mum had a padlock to the cupboard where Garri was kept but no padlock to the cupboard of yam flour (popularly called Elubo Isu among Yorubas). In the evening when I had nothing to eat, I took some portion of the flour, added some water and drank it all. I later fell ill not too long from that time and my mum discovered what I took. Thanks to some portions of palm oil that was given to me. I almost vomited my heart out.
Garri and Palm oil:
I bet, very few Lagos born children can eat this now. They will probably describe it as “Abasha”. However, a mixture of some portion of Palm oil and Garri which was usually called “Epo Obo” was quite nice to eat. Although, many other young children like me wonder why I love to eat this weird food combo.
Bread and Tooth paste:
I remember the first time I had the rare opportunity to brush my teeth by myself, I was quick to take more than usual portion of Maclean tooth paste because I love licking it. On days we have Agege bread on our food menu, I stylishly and secretly find my way to the bath room to pick the paste and use as spread over my bread. Yummy isnt it? Always laughing when I remember these actions of mine
Anyways, these are my top three weirdest food combination, if you think you have got other food combination as weird or more weird than mine, I put you to a challenge to share them. Waiting to get your responses. LoL
