Yep. Bizarre combination of empty shelves at the shops this market day. Some things I'd expect (there's a run on bog roll again despite covid not causing the squits! And yeast has gone missing again) but others are just a bit odd, such as coconut milk and several types of fruit'n'nut chocolate: has Trump called them miracle cures this week?
well the touch stone of things to come is a) there are no baked beans or nearly sold out.
For some reason my lidl had been getting in supplies of bread yeast week in week out - thats now all gone and the white bread flour just a few left whereas there had alwayd been a healthy supply the last few weeks. I went to Tescos and got 4 pkts of whole meal flour as I found a white/whole meal mix is the nest combination if you want the bread to last a few days & still keep the price down - their own brand is £1.10 and they also had some locally milled stuff for £1.30 Wrights located at Ponders End, Middlesex, London, using wheat from Essex. So I bought a couple .
