The Apple of Immortality.... oh OK, Good Health.

My mom was away these past few weeks and I had to cook for my adopted son and yours truly everyday, at least once. I am not a fussy cook and my dishes are simple and usually monotonous @ the same (because I like the same food cooked in a particular way... duh).

The left-side of my stomach was smartly scalded by hot oil as I was cooking just 20 minutes ago. It happened as I put onion and garlic into the pot, and there was me without my shirt on. OUCH!! But this post was not about me being scarred for life. I just wanna talk about onions and its pungent cousin, garlic.

I love onions and garlic. Sometimes I eat them (mostly onions) raw with rice and other dishes. Or put it twice or thrice as much more than the recipe required. My nutritional science professor told me in the year 2000 that onions and garlic will do a good job to deter diseases and promotes good health. And she is right... A huge daily diet of the stuff makes me almost invulnerable to the cold, fever and the usual illnesses people get.

But my nose will still be runny when it is too dusty or too hot. I cannot do much about that :(

Maybe people do not like onions and garlic much because of the smell, and body odor... Oh well, I believe in good health, and not what people think. (And NO, I do not stink, thank you very much).

p.s. - am thinking of getting gingko biloba for my first supplement. I am getting older anyway.

My wife is the onion-est eatin' person I have ever met in my life. I swear, if there was an onion flavored ice cream, she would try it.

I love garlic. Except in corn....

We eat a lot of garlic and onions in our house. My daughter is terrible for garlic - when cooking for herself she uses more than I use for the entire family!

Hope the burn is OK!

Why do men like to cook without their shirt on? Heck. Who do men not like to wear a shirt (amongst other things) when in their own private space?

And Aizan; What's wrong being semi nude / fully naked in our own home? It's not like I'm advertising myself next to the window :)
