For New Years Eve — I suppose I’m a bit superstitious — I shall make certain dishes this night. Yes, I shall be serving pork, greens, legumes, and cornbread. (Personal preference; I just feel that cornbread is lucky.)
Out of curiosity, I wondered if others were as nutty as I. Well, it appears to be so. Uh-huh! http://www.epicurious.com/articlesguides/holidays/newyearsday/luckyfoods
It seems as though Americans aren’t the only superstitious folks. Apparently, many Spanish countries eat grapes. That hasn’t seemed to be very lucky for Spain, Portugal, and Mexico.
If you read the link, it also lists the foods to avoid. Lobster is on that list. I’m very fond of lobster and so is the First Lady, but I won’t eat it today; will she?
Lately, I’ve not been able to stay up until midnight (unless I’m out dancing with FL.) This year, I shall be a lame-o and cook the lucky meal then try to hold out as long as possible.
Am I the lone nutter or do you all have a lucky New Year’s Eve meal/plan?
