I can find (frozen) okra, however. I've seen it both at an independent grocery store near my home and my food co-op. I suspect, however, that okra is less popular in Minnesota than it is in Arkansas and that that has something to do with not finding it on the shelves, too.
My husband's brothers own a restaurant. They ordered some (frozen) for us from a wholesale food company.

Does anyone ever run out of lancets? I change more often than I used to but I have enough for years!

I bought the "economy size" box when I started taking my diabetes seriously. I still have it. The waste associated with one use is simply appalling considering they're used only on me and my clean fingers.

I quit having my prescription refilled. I haven't found anyone yet that needed them!

I have taken to freezing my own from fresh cauliflower. There's no comparison between home frozen and commercial frozen.

If there's a really nice, pure white head at the store, and (most importantly) I have time to process it that same day, I'll get it. I have found it doesn't pay to put off getting it in the freezer pronto - if I put it off for a day or two, mold begins to grow on it.

I have discovered that one can freeze zucchini successfully. I slice in fairly thick slices, put on a tray and freeze (no blanching). Then bag it. They defrost with still some firmness left in them. (The store-bought sliced zucchini was a bit too soggy for my taste after defrosting.)

It is amazing how busy you can be after retiring. I just thought I didn't have much free time when I had a job.

When my father said that after he retired, I kind of chuckled inwardly. Once I retired, I understood what he meant. The nice thing is that most of the things we're busy with now are our choice and -- generally -- on our own timetable.

In this case, it isn't my goofy mind. Here's the first line of a news article from a website in the UK: "DIABETES type 2 would be a relatively benign condition were it not for high blood sugar levels." Duh!

Well, decapitation wouldn’t be fatal if the brain weren’t required for function.
