The breakfast for a new year.
Italians have a new year's tradition of eating lentils on January 1. The legend is that because lentils are round and resemble coins, their abundance will bring you good fortune in the new year.
Well, I didn't have any lentils so I grabbed the only round food I could find. Cheerios. Then I got nervous cause the Cheerios have a hole in the middle and I was worried that might effect the whole abundance theory.
So to be safe, for lunch I made silver dollar sized pancakes. (Sorry, no photo available.)
