And have had fair advance warning!

Place cubed pumpkin on a baking sheet.
Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt.
Coat the pumpkin evenly coated and spread it out in one layer.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until cooked (turn over half way through).

Steam or boil the beans for about 3-5 minutes, until cooked.
Plunge beans into cold water to and stop the cooking process and drain.

In a large bowl, combine the oven roasted pumpkin with the green beans.
