Definitely do not underestimate the 2-3 types of frozen vegetable in the frozen section, nor the 4-8 varieties of vegetables in the fresh section, as well.

It's 5 pm, yet there's no dinner clock ticking in Japan because: (1) the husband has mandatory unpaid overtime, and won't be home until 11 pm; (2) the kids have cram school and won't be home until 9 pm; and (3) there is no room in the typical micro fridge and micro kitchen in a micro Japanese house to store all of the mentioned food items.

It's an article about New York

I am interested to know if this article applies to Japanese readers as much as it does to New York readers.

Since we are retired, we only cook when we feel like it. We usually go out and eat, get senior portions, and take home the left overs for later.
