I would not call myself completely superstitious but I think it folly to ignore the potential to rack up good luck for an entire year, especially when through delicious means. Last year at this time I shared a recipe for Hoppin’ John, a traditional dish in the U.S. South believed to predisposition one for good fortune if eaten first thing in the new year. It is a delicious, hearty dish I’d gladly eat every morning. Featuring the beans, rice, some spicy flavor and pork, one is lucky merely to get to eat it for breakfast; any additional good luck is upside.
Don’t Forget: for luck, eat a bit the very first thing on the New Year! Whether it be at 12:01 a.m. or when you get up!
