Happy New Year!

Italian folklore holds that each lentil eaten on the first day of a new year represents some money that will be obtained that year. How much does each lentil represent? Who knows - "un pezzo d'oro" could be any size.

I would be anticipating far more income in 2006 if we hadn't eaten our lentils (along with the equally traditionally pig's foot) as the third course of our New Year's Day feast.
