GET LUCKY THIS WEEK!
Every culture has traditional foods for inviting luck in the New Year and whichever you choose the Pacific Beach Tueday Farmers' Market offers all the ingredients you need for eating in the New Year right.
In Italy, as in many cultures, pork is usually on the menu since pigs move forward and represent the fat of the land. Conversely, hope you finished that lobster on New Year's Eve. They move backwards and are considered bad luck on New Year's Day. Ditto chickens and turkeys that scratch backwards, but we're thinking rabbit would be auspicious. Along with the pork, Italians eat lentils symbolizing money, like the beans and peas that many cultures consume.
