Italians eat lentils in celebration of the New Year. The small round legumes resemble small coins and symbolize wealth and prosperity. The more lentils you eat, the more wealth and prosperity you will experience in the coming year. I love lentils, I love tradition, and I will share my favorite tasty lentil soup recipe on the first day of the New Year.
Today, however, I celebrate the end of 2012 and initiate an amazing new tradition… caramel popcorn. I hereby decree I will consume these crispy, crunchy, clusters of golden goodness each New Year’s Eve to symbolize my sweet successes of the past year and the golden opportunities that await in the year ahead.
Try this. You will not be disappointed. You can be good next year!
Confession of a *wannabe* foodie… This caramel popcorn is highly addictive. It may be more addictive than Cheetos. Consider yourself warned.
