    1. I suppose frozen pizza and ice cream. I do like vegetables, but I don't buy a lot of frozen vegetables -- they serve as my backup.

      1. Frozen chopped broccoli or spinach for quiche. Tater tots. Frozen fruit for smoothies. Frozen shrimp. Breakfast sausages, waffles. Ice Cream, sherbet, frozen yogurt.

          I don't keep it on hand but I will do the broccoli for quiche or spinach for other recipes like that. Shrimp we will also buy.

        2. Frozen vegs in the steam bags like green beans, corn, broccoli, baby carrots, cauliflower, etc. When they are on sale at $10 for 10, I stock up to have on hand for when I'm out of fresh vegs to serve with dinner. I also keep frozen corn on hand for those times I'm in the mood for creamed corn and a couple of boxes of frozen peas for the nights I want to make pasta primavera.

            Yes, indeedy to this. I also love the brussel sprouts in the steam bags. I love those little guys so much I have them as a snack sometimes, usually burning my tongue because I can't wait to eat them.

          2. Frozen veggies like spinach, peppers and onions, the famous chinese mix, and broccoli. I also get frozen berries. For me it's an issue of price. They are cheaper then the their fresh counter parts and there is more of them., they last longer.
