You guys have really been hit with drought, fire then this crap.  I bet if your leaders ask U.S.  we would send a ship or two to of rice and pasta to help.  Our countries have stood by each other.  God bless you guys.

Thanks for that but I guess you guys will need all you can get yourselves,

"We'll be right mate"

That's an Aussie saying, 

We have plenty of fresh goods  in the local stores, here in Perth western Australia we very lucky in this situation,we only have a small population ,and plenty of farms around that export  their goods all over Asia so we will have a glut soon I think, I feel for the rest  of the country......we 3000 miles from them.... 

BONUS.....im being selfish there

My Aunt used to make homemade noodles with just flour and water, probably and egg and salt...they were soooooo good....the best I have ever had in my life. She would put them in soup. I miss her.
But they are easy to make.

You can't find rice and pasta on the grocery store shelves here either from what I read on fb

But Australia is a huge wheat grower. The north Island of NZ gets all it's wheat flour from Australia. You can easily make pasta. The trouble with homemade pasta is it's so delicious you can't stop eating it. I have to limit how often I make it or we'd all be fat. It's so good.

You can't fix stupid.

I don't have a pasta machine, but you dont' need it unless you're making thin spaghetti.  I like to make those big long wide ribbon noodles, in garlic and oil with parmesan!  Yum!!!
