Macaroni Bake with Beans and Cheese

It is often the small kind gestures in life that can change a person's attitude, it is the "hello" and gently asking how someone is, it is doing something nice for someone, not because you have to.  People often take for granted the ones who are closest to them. A kind gesture can change someone’s heart, maybe, someone’s life.  Charity does start at home; People tend to associate charity with a donation. Charity is giving to those you love your time and your patience and kind words. This is the true form of charity and that should start at home.  


1 lb. of your favorite macaroni
22 oz. can of baked beans
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup of fresh Italian parsley – chopped
2 tablespoons – butter
¼ cup of milk
Fresh grated Romano cheese


1 tsp. brown sugar
½ tsp. curry powder
½ tsp. ground cumin
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
