Broiled Tomatoes and Roasted Green Beans

Broiled Tomatoes with Provel Cheese

4 roma tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
Provel cheese, shredded

Preheat broiler.   Slice tomatoes about 1/4 inch thick.  Spray oil on baking sheet (I use aluminum foil and spray it). 
Lay tomato slices on baking sheet in single layer.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.  Place provel cheese on top of each slice.
Broil until cheese is melted and starting to brown.

I think they taste better it you let them cool a little before eating.

Roasted Green Beans

1 lb green beans, trimmed and cleaned
olive oil
garlic powder

Preheat broiler.  Cover baking sheet with foil and spray with oil.
Toss green beans with a little oil and seasonings to taste.
Spread green beans on baking sheet.   Roast until crisp tender.

Cupa Cupa Cupa Cobbler

This is a recipe I got from my friend. Donna (made a few changes). 

1/2 stick margarine
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
3 - 4 cups fresh fruit (I think you could probably use canned fruit filling if fresh fruit is not in season)

Since I used peaches, I added some sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Melt the margarine in the bottom of a casserole or baking dish.  Add the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and milk - stir to blend.

Spoon the fruit on top of the batter - do not stir.

Bake at 350 - about 30 minutes - until browned.  The batter rises above the fruit (or the fruit sinks) and makes a crust.

Served warm with vanilla ice cream - yum!  Doesn't get much better than that.
