Shortage of goods, supply chain issues

Can I just point out, for the benefit of anyone who gets cornered by a member of the Brexitgeddon brigade this festive season...

...that those of us in Euroland have experienced similar supply-chain issues (presumably due to Covid), both in the first Lockdown period and this one.

Blaming Brexit for your inability to purchase %item_x% and having to make do with %item_y% instead is disingenuous at best. It also betrays a willful ignorance of what life is like in Europe.

We'll blame Brexit or the French. Which would you prefer?

I seriously doubt there will be a shortage of food. There might be a shortage of a particular item that you wanted, but that often happens, especially when Nigella bungs it in a recipe.

Oddly, this might make us more European. Go shopping, see what is available and good and then make a meal around it. Rather than planning leg of lamb with asparagus in November.

That's weird -- my wife said on the weekend that there was no coconut milk available anywhere.

[I asked if there weren't any coconuts available instead, but only got a harsh stare in reply.]

Thats what happens when you pour it on the floor. It disperses.

No problem in jockland. 

And it all comes from outside the EU anyway so if there are issues it's nothing to do with the DEADLY Brexit.

Snowfire ointment sticks. I have no idea why. We just had to order some from a chemist in Ireland, nothing anywhere else.

I have a couple of tins of coconut milk in my cupboard from the last lockdown.

At the time everyone was panic buying tins of chopped tomatoes. There was plenty of coconut milk though so instead of pasta sauces, I decided to cook Thai chicken currys instead. 

It became a bit of a running joke with one of my neighbours who started to leave tins of coconut milk outside my front door.

I will be gutted if there is a shortage of coconut milk now as I love Thai currys. 

My other half is off to the supermarket now and I have asked him to see what the stocks are like.

I'm making Moroccan Veg Tagine tonight - a great way to use up veg that needs eating.

That's what I did in the spring. Quite good, made me try new recipes and lots of things I wouldn't usually eat.

My one-pan staples have been:

-Can of chicken in white sauce or stewed steak.

-Fresh (broccoli, cauliflower) or frozen mixed veg

-Then a selection from fresh ginger, turmeric, black pepper, garlic, nduja di spilinga, mixed herbs.

-Heaped teaspoon of salt.

Great chef me...

You need to start a bizarre rumour first. Like: the fate of the EU's mango harvest. Because of Covid, the French have realised that they need to supplement their population's diet with foods with a high vitamin C content.

This has resulted in a number of armed Romanian gangs in the Calais area halting lorries and stealing their precious orange-fleshed fruit to sell on the black market elsewhere in France.

This has resulted in a shortage of the things making it across the channel. The French have a phrase for this: "Les Mangues manquantes de la Manche". So, if you see a mango in the shops, buy it - in fact, buy the whole box and resell them individually on eBay for twenty quid each!

I had bad eczema as a teenager (bad enough to have to go to hospital consultations). I was given all sorts of creams and ointments.

The only thing that made much difference was Snowfire, and that was recommended by my father who remembered it as an old fashioned cure-all from the 1930s.

Oh it's worse. Because you also get little Englanders complaining that you can't get a decent British meal like chicken tikka masala anywhere. And that the local cheese and sausages are all crap.

What's funniest though is that the ones who moan loudest voted for Remain!

Another £130 delivery from Tesco today. Completely unnecessary 40 tinned produce but I couldn't just order the five litres of Tesco's voddy on its own
