Delectable green bean - cheese bake

Garden season is in full swing.  I pick the green and yellow beans every few days.  Then there's the cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet corn, peppers, and beets just awaiting my attention NOW.

My daughters, EMU daughter and I made the first batch of salsa for the season.  Yummmmmmmmmmmm............ nothing like a fresh batch of salsa to eat.  The taste-testing becomes our lunch sometimes.  

Called about peaches to our local fruit/vegetable farm market.  They have Red Havens ready for purchase.   Ooooooooo............. haven't done peaches for a couple of years.  Can't wait to eat a juicy sweet peach grown in Michigan.

Needless to say, time is a bit short this week.  Much to accomplish in this last month of summer.  Thought I would send along another one of my favorite summer recipes.  This doesn't take "a lot of something", but it's a delicious way to eat green beans.
