6 Lucky Food to Eat to Ensure a Good 2016

When I as a kid, my mom would make pork and sauerkraut on New Year’s Day because they were thought to be lucky. This meal, I believed, ensured that I’d have a great year. Although I love sauerkraut now, as I kid I hated it. But there was no way I would risk not eating sauerkraut and having a lousy year!

So, if you want to have a good 2016 you better make sure you grab at least a bite of something from the list below!

1. Pigs are a lucky symbol because they root forward. No looking back for this kid.
Pork & Sage MeatballsTry our Pork and Sage Meatballs or

Cold Sesame Noodles2. In Asian culture, Noodles are believed to bring you a long life.
Our Cold Sesame Noodles should do the trick.

3. A cake shaped like a ring is a symbol of coming full circle.

4. Greens are supposed to bring you the green stuff, money. In many cultures, like my half Hungarian, half German mother, we had sauerkraut.
Try our Paprika Pork and Sauerkraut Stew.

5. Peas, especially black-eyed peas because they look like little coins, are also thought to bring your wealth and good fortune. Try our Bacon-Roasted Chickpeas.

Baked Fish w:Citrus Butter Sauce6. Still worried about your finances? Fish, too, will bring you wealth because the metallic sheen of their scales look like money.
Try our Baked Fish with Citrus Butter or Pecan Crusted Fish.
