Martin Luther King Jr. Day is an important day in our history. Why not celebrate it by preparing delicious foods like these for your family and friends:

Being from the South Martin Luther King Jr. had many favorite southern style foods. To celebrate the day properly you should consider spicy southern snapper, hot tempered chicken strips, Hoppiní John Rice and Black- Eyed Peas, Southern Cornbread, and Creole Chicken with Rice.

The Olde Southern Kosher Cornbread combines 1 ĺ cups yellow cornmeal, ľ cup of flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 ľ cups of buttermilk, Ĺ teaspoon of baking soda, 2 eggs, 2 teaspoons of butter, and a pinch of sugar. You combine the cornmeal, flour, salt, and baking powder in one bowl. In another bowl you will combine the buttermilk and baking soda. Then you will add the mixture to the cornmeal beat in the eggs and stir in melted butter. You will then need to heat the skillet with a little grease and back at 450 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Pecan pie is another southern tradition and will top of the Buffet menu with a wonderful dessert. For pecan pie you need 3 eggs, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, 1 cup corn syrup, 2 tablespoons butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 Ĺ cups pecans, and an unbaked pie shell. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl beat the eggs then stir in the sugar and flour. Once that is stirred in add the corn syrup, butter and vanilla. Then fold in the pecans. Place the mixture in the shell and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

If you have a few ideas to work from, itís really not that difficult to create a Southern-inspired feast that will have your guests coming back for seconds. Keep in mind though that itís important that you donít miss out - allow time for you to mingle with your guests and enjoy the occasion, and itíll make the day even more enjoyable. By just adding even one simple food item to the menu will help create a complete Martin Luther King Jr theme party feeling.
