There are quite a few traditional holiday foods in the USA and around the world for ensuring you will have luck, prosperity, happiness and joy throughout the new year.
Here are some ideas for foods to eat, and recipes to cook to ensure you have a delicious meal, and maybe ensure you'll have a little extra cash in 2014.
New Year's Day Menu
Roast Pork with Rosemary and Garlic
Eat pork on New Year's day so that all year you'll live off the fat of the land. Pigs also represent the future because they always move forward - never back.
Avoid chicken or you'll spend 2014 scratching for food.
Wilted Cabbage Salad
Cabbage represents money - something we'd all appreciate a little more of in 2014! This salad has the bonus of also including bacon - more pork. :)
Salmon with Lentils and Mustard Herb Butter
Not a fan of pork and cabbage? Choose fish and lentils instead. Fish scales and lentils represent coins (prosperity), while fish swim in schools and represent abundance.
