    I take Mondays off but if somebody set a plate of chicken, peas, and cornbread in front of me I wouldn't decline.  Can I substitute a little wilted spinach with vinegar for the collards?

    I celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday every year but I never move it to a Monday to do so.

    I like everything but the black eyed peas, maybe substitute another vegetable?  Besides pecan pie being a favorite dessert, I wonder what others would have been served, maybe sweet potato pie or peach cobbler?

    Here's another pecan pie recipe.  Sounds crazy adding pudding mix, but it's very good and helps cut the sweetness.
     
    Pudding Pecan Pie
     
    1 pkg (4 serving size) vanilla cook-and-serve pudding and pie filling
    1 cup light or dark corn syrup
    3/4 cup evaporated milk
    1 egg, slightly beaten
    1 cup chopped pecans
    1 unbaked 8" pastry shell
     
    Preheat oven 350 degrees
     
    In a mixing bowl, stir dry pudding mix into corn syrup and mix until well blended.  Stir in evaporated milk, and egg.  Mix in pecans and pour into pastry shell.
     
    Bake for about 45 minutes or until the top is firm and just begins to crack.  Let cool for at least 3 hours before serving.

    I'm not sure I would call it a "rare confluence".   MLK's birthday falls on a Monday, on average, every 7th one.  Some stretches go more than 7, some less, as Leap Years can throw a wrench in there.  But, it averages every 7th birthday.  Same thing for Memorial Day (which is actually May 30th).  It falls on a Monday, on average, every 7th one.   Calendar gymnastics aside, it looks like Dr. King had some good taste.

    Different scale of comparison, I suppose.  Birthdays are only once a year, anyway.  If I had a pizza only once a year, I'd call it rare.  But, I wouldn't call having a birthday once a year a rare event, ... nor every 7th one rare.  Only eating one Po Boy once in 7 years is eating a Po Boy only once every 2,555 possible days.  That is rare.  While a having Monday birthday is one in every 7 birthdays.  One out of 2,555 chances to eat a Po Boy is rare.  One out of 7 chances to have a Monday birthday is not so rare, in my opinion.   Anyway, rarity is admittedly subjective.
