Good Luck Foods for 2007

MakingSense | Dec 4, 200604:28 AM

I want to plan a New Year's Day Open House Buffet menu around foods that bring good luck for the coming year if you eat them on New Year's Day.

Like Black Eyed Peas or Hoppin'John in the South. My German Grandmother fixed cabbage - the leaves meant money in the New Year!
Lentils in Italy for coins.

Do you know any others? Where did the tradition originate? Is it found in the US as well?
