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.

Allow the brown lentils to cook first until half cooked before adding the rice at 50-50 ratio.

Just one more dish.

Sautéed chopped onions with olive oil, add a can of chopped tomatoes, let it all blend for a while in medium heat then add Bulgur and mix well all together, then add the measured water and let it simmer. Delicious.

Thanks Kikapu!

I think I can survive the Coronavirus apocalypse with onion, lentils, canned tomato, olive oil, and butter now.

Throw in the rice and spuds and all is good.

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.


Amazing how quick you are to advise what the Australian Government tells you and how off-hand and derisive you become when information comes from any other source.

You didn't bother to read either of them and dismissed the reports out-of-hand, because they were a different source and didn't support your opinion.

So, how about ....... from UK's The Independent newspaper, an article that lends support to the events I previously posted ? :
Research into deadly viruses and biological weapons at US army lab shut down over fears they could escape

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/virus-biological-us-army-weapons-fort-detrick-leak-ebola-anthrax-smallpox-ricin-a9042641.html


Accidental discharges of these viruses do not just happen in the countries you despise ...... they happen in the US too (and I suspect in other countries as well). In the first article they name relatives of those that died in the US prior to the Coronavirus outbreak in China who were told it was Flu but the death certificates said it was Coronavirus. So there are a few facts about events in the US that were probably played down to cover their mistakes and it would create an uproar if they were to admit that it was a US incident that was the source! :roll:

If you only ever consider the evidence of the accuser and dismiss the evidence of the defendent you will never find out the truth.

Oh shut the hell up Robin Hood. I’ve literally got no time to deal with your hysterical ramblings and insanity!

Back to the real world - I am not sure if this is 100% correct but I have been informed that:

Australia is about to go into total lock down.

Apparently the Government is preparing to announce the following:

All schools, universities and businesses will be closed for 3 weeks.

Everyone is to stay home. No one will be allowed in the streets and this will be enforced by law enforcement. Only essential services will be working.

The countries state emergency services will be activated. Not sure if the military will come out of their barracks but it’s possible there could be Martial Law.

Businesses are already being notified apparently.

Australia is planning to isolate the entire population. I don’t know what this means.

Basically they are shutting everything down and closing off the country.

Basically, Australia is about to close itself off to the world.

Don’t really know what to make of all this but I have total confidence in our authorities at the present time. Perhaps they are correct to take such drastic measures. It seems they want to act very early.

I don’t know how people will get food or whether shopping for essentials will be allowed because apparently Law Enforcement will enforce the curfews.

They have announced $50,000 in fines for anyone who violates imposed self isolation which will soon become mandatory isolation for everyone.

Only essential travel will be allowed. For example foreign nationals and permanent residents trying to go home. Going for a walk etc not allowed.

Thank heavens for Netflix! :lol:

I just saw one of the 5000 drive thru testing stations.

Bloody incredible. These guys in full protective suits come to your car and take a swab of your saliva.

It’s like a movie scene. :o

The Government has said Australia’s testing regime is now the best of the world on par with Korea.

Emergency action plans are already underway.

I’ve been tipped off on some kind of emergency crisis speech which will be announced within 48 hours. I don’t know if the information is completely accurate but I have been told of a total shutdown of everything and strict isolation. Even workplaces to be closed for 2 or 3 weeks. Workers to be forced on sick leave. School shutdown too.

My wife did some last minute shopping and she went up to one of the store assistants to ask if supermarkets will be closed. He didn’t answer but as she was with our 2 kids, the guy went out the back and bought her some rice, cans of tuna, cans of vegetables, beans, minced meat, pasta, spuds, and also onions and toilet paper. He told her to better be safe than sorry ma’am and look after yourself and the children. Which also means the chains are stockpiling in their store rooms and maybe they were instructed to do that.

He could not answer her questions directly but it seems all businesses are preparing to shut their doors.

Which makes me ask what of the elderly, and vulnerable. I would like to believe that State Emergency Services will start dropping off supplies to their homes.

Gee I hope everyone stays safe. It seems Australia wants to copy the Spain model before they become another Spain or Italy.

It makes me wonder now because our PM just said all households should have 2 weeks worth of food in their lantues and fridges. Was he giving a hint on what is going to occur next? I dunno!

Onions, canned tomatoes, olive oil, potatoes, and rice are all checked!

Plenty of vegetables, long life milk, cereals, and also she got me 3 kilos of my favourite Louganis - bless her cotton socks. :D

Now on the news there has just been a story that the army has already started using APC and their vehicles to move around masks and other supplies from manufacturers.

They are already started to come on the streets. :?

I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.

My bottom draw in one of the kitchen cabinets has 8 bottle holders, so I keep them full at all times with 1 liter olive oil each, and this is just normal for me and not just now. The 9th olive oil bottle is “in use” cabinet.

What is Louganis?
