X-mas dinner help

Do you use fresh ones, or do they come frozen or in jars/cans? Isn't there something odd about the way you prepare them or something, if you're using not-jarred ones?
Of course the frozen ones. Never tried the jarred ones. They're too expensive anyway. (This is a Jamie Oliver recipe, love that guy).

And about the pumpkin, which I'd also like to try, but not for xmas... I assume you peel and whatnot the pumpkin so you just have the "walls" of it in chunks or something?
Just peel the pumpkin and take away the seeds, fiber, etc. You know the meat in between the skin and seeds. The tastes very good though it's very simple.

Hmmm...never seen frozen artichokes...but then again, I never looked. I'll have to try that. Hopefully I can find things like artichokes in my neck of the woods...hopefully people in the store will know what I'm talking about when I ask. (Don't laugh, I ran across someone who didn't realize that ginger existed in a form other than dried and powdered, in the baking aisle. The nearest ginger-having store is 45+minutes away.)

Oooh, I should send you one of the culinary ginger plants we have in the greenhouse on campus. They reproduce like mad, and as I'm sure you've discovered, there's nothing like fresh ginger :)

Speaking about the ignorance of the people who work at groceries, I ran into a lot of cashers who could not tell zucchinis from cucumbers.

There are culinary and non-culinary versions? Ya' learn something new every day...

Sweet thought, and much appreciated, but we kill plants. Except Phil(odendron), who seems to like being ignored. But he's the only surviving plant.

Two thoughts:
One, Green beens and slivered almonds, sauteed in olive oil and spices. (then baked)
Two: What about some kind of shepherds pie? My favorite vegetarian pie obtion is Cheese and broccoli. You have a creamy cheddar cheese filling, with broccoli, carrots and potatoes inside a pie crust. Aside for a short pre cook of veggies, its baked!

Edit: Oooooh, sautee the green beans in ghee not olive oil, and deffinitly use fresh ones!
