    haha was this prompted by me at all?

    xp got me onto the frozen stuff cos we never ate the fresh stuff before it went off. i stuck with it cos it's cheaper and i can't reliably eat veges regularly. i'll absolutely stick with frozen with kids unless that changes, which i can't see happening right now.

    Fresh

    Frozen peas and corn though - but I only use them in things like soup, risotto, fried rice, etc - not as an actual vegetable side dish.

    I use both. Probably more fresh, but will use the mixed frozen veg (carrot, corn, peas, broccoli, cauliflower) in the cottage pie along with tinned lentils, fresh capsicum, fresh onion, mushrooms, zucchini and potato (for the top) so a bit of variety really.

    bonus with frozen is you can buy in bulk and then if you have a low pay week you can still have veges.

    I always have frozen peas, beans, corn, packet spinach and Asian mixed veg on hand for when I make a meal on the hop, and tend to buy fresh veg for specific recipes. Always have spuds, onions and garlic in cupboard. But I am tempted by fresh veg impulse buys - got some purple carrots recently just because they looked interesting.

    Half and half. If I buy it all fresh it doesnt get eaten before going bad
