Not the best from the Netherlands

This could be the future of flour arrangements. Flour out of it's packets, bags fallen over...... but not on my watch! .... well not in a shop. That's just spillage and waste.

Luke has sent this picture from the Netherlands. Thanks Luke! It was good of him to take time out from his holiday to get this snap, although it is disapointing to see the state of them shelves.


It's good to be reminded of what is going on in the world today. I think that my local Waitrose shields me from these situations and we need to be reminded of what is going on out there. There are spillages!

This is a difficult one to score, as it's not so bad if you don't see the mess (in the bottom right hand corner), but it is there. So it can't be forgotten. It's got quantity (although not full), a range (although it's not great) and an effort has been made to line it up (kind of).

But even if it is a vast generalisation, I agree with Luke "Dutch don't do it well...".

Hopefully we get some more dutch pictures to prove us wrong.

    The email arrives, it has an attachment, the subject says "flour arrangement", i get excited. "Now we are cookin'" I think, to find that someone thinks that my nod to baking week means that cup cakes become flour arrangements.

    Retreading is also only practicable with confidence if the retreaded tyre is engineered with the appropriate strength and durability.

    Some might say the people behind this are crazy, and i would agree, but as flour has to be in the mix, they are a good kind of crazy.
