Here are some interesting facts just released by our Federal Government.

They are claiming they were the first country to declare the outbreak a pandemic even beating WHO.

They said they are way ahead of the curve and the rest of the world in declaring an emergency and implementing travel restrictions. Whatever happens in the future, Australia will be the best prepared country in the world for any outcome.

They said, Australia has the toughest measures of any country.

They also said they could be closing down schools in the near future and have not done so yet because working mums won’t be able to go to work. Situation is evolving and they said Australians should expect more restrictions and inconveniences soon.

They appealed to the public to look after the welfare of the elderly and if you have an elderly neighbour, to ensure they have food and hygiene products. It doesn’t take much to leave a hot casserole on their porch they said.

Most hospitals now have dedicated isolating and infectious disease wards and have implanted that Pandemic and Infectious Disease Emergency Response.

buy high dose vitamin C tablets, or Ascorbic acid powder to dissolve and drink,

take high concentrations of it,

Raw honey (Manuka is the best and most expensive), ginger, tumeric and raw garlic are natural anti biotics and anti virals.

I am no doctor but build up your immune system,

This too will pass.

Aside from taking my daily Centrum multivitamin tablet for the last 20+ years, I am also daily heavy drinker of orange juice. Tomatoes, onions and garlic powder often used in my cookings.

I’m in Melbourne now and In my hotel room watching the news. Will be going out soon for dinner. I have so far not changed anything with regards to my lifestyle. I do however was my hands more often and I do try to “socially exclude” myself. In other words not stand close to other people if I can help it. I may however try and get hold of some Vitamin C tablets, Zinc, raw honey, garlic, turmeric and all that good stuff and go for it. :lol:

Life in Melbourne is normal. People going about their normal business.

One of the discussion points now on the news seems to be the Australian Triage System.

Medical Authorities have made it known that the Triage system will be applied in Australia. In other words, young will get assistance before the old, and in accordance to risk and severity.

This has never happened before in the Australian Health System. Not even during natural disasters like bushfires or cyclones as the Health Sector has never been inundated to the point where they have refused treatment to certain people.

You can imagine the conspiracy theories now coming out over that one.

All in all, an expert was interviewed and he said there is no reason to panic. Just be cautious, limit your non essential travel. Practice social exclusion, and don’t have close contact with others and do t shake hands. If people practice common sense then there is little chance things will get too crazy. The disease can be contained and Australian authorities are doing everything possible to contain it.

There is a very aggressive testing program in place which also means Australia’s statistics will rise and that this rise is inevitable. He added that many countries overseas have not been as transparent and have covered up their true statistics.

Turkey comes to mind. But they are not alone.

What do you do with the onions?

You should speak to my wife because I sometimes eat onions like apples. I really like the juicy ones.

She just shakes her head in horror but they actually taste good.

I like Melbourne.

Turkey just announced they have 18 cases, 12 more than yesterday and it is all blamed to those coming from abroad. Yes, Turkey is hiding their numbers. They will do a drip drip release of the number of those infected.

Onions are one of the most versatile vegetables in cooking. I buy them by the kilos.

Chopped onions in meat sauce when making Shepherds pie, stuffed Eggplant (Aubergine), stuffed zucchini, white beans (fasulya).
Chopped onions in Molohiya/Moloha
Sautéed chopped onions together with chopped eggplant and zucchini and olive oil cooked down together with garlic and chili to make spread on bread as a starter.
Sautéed chopped onions in tomato sauce with garlic prawns, olive oil mixed with penne pasta.
Sautéed chopped onions, cooked with chopped potatoes mixed with spices in olive oil and then crack 2-3 eggs and mix, mainly for breakfast, but I make it for anytime. I have some in the fridge now from two days ago.
Sautéed onions in red lentil soup.
Eat raw onions with fasulya and Molohiya.

Yeh I love onions.

Cooked too. One of my favourite dishes is Stifado with rabbit.

You are making my mouth water with all the other stuff you listed as well.

I only really eat the raw onions because they are on the table when we cook a nice pasta, stifado, black beans etc etc.

I love the Mediterranean Diet

My sister cooked the onion dish (stifado) for me in the UK recently. She did not use rabbit, but when we were growing up, mum did use rabbit. I have personally never cooked this dish myself, but it is very special..

My other favourite onion dish is, sautéed lots of chopped onions in half olive oil/ half butter with a lot of black pepper until golden brown and mix it with cooked rice and brown lentils. Let it sit for few minutes for all the flavours to blend together with the rice and lentils. When served, add some Greek yogurt on top. You can’t stop eating it.

I’m gonna try that.

Stifado I like with rabbit. It’s a traditional dish.

However, I have seen people make it with beef and chicken but it isn’t the same. They don’t like rabbit because it’s a dry meat, and lots of bones. I love it.

But I also like all the Cypriot dishes. Fasoulada with lots of potato and onion, black beans, goutchia, dolmades, lamb kleftimo (yum)

Gee there isn’t a lot I don’t like really.
