In Argentina, it´s a tradition to eat gnocchi on the 29th of every month as it´s considered good luck. Some folks even put a peso underneath their plate to help bring in wealth.
It´s actually so well ingrained in the society that in one (of the many) corrupt governments, the government workers who were on the payroll but weren´t actually working were called ¨gnocchis¨ as they only showed up once a month to collect their paychecks.
Tom and I love gnocchi so this is a tradition that works for us and one we hope to bring back home. So go ahead and be like the Argentines and have some gnocchi today.
