In the spirit of Dr. King's Day and Birthday I want to do something special! Being the cook that I am I decided to make some of his favorite foods . Then I realized he shared the love of Sweet potatoes with our president Barack Obama!! So I ended up making everything on the list: Fried porkchops, Sweet potatoes, Rolls, Mac and cheese, and the wine of the south Iced sweet tea. This was a southern feast that had to be shared with you. I took pictures of the dinner, but i'm only sharing the mac and cheese recipe . The recipe I put my new little twist on! I hope you will enjoy this recipe and have a happy and blessed Martin Luther King Day!
