Lucky Gnocchi Day!…
Isn’t it amazing how when one door closes…another one opens up even better?
We had our eyes set on a certain restaurant which we had heard had rave reviews…BUT when we pulled up they were closed! So naturally we were a little bummed…but as one keeps an open mind, you just never know what could be around the corner.
We pulled out our Iphones and were literally led to this establishment…what a great experience it was.
Can you see my youngest daughter inside the restaurant? She has just been greeted by the hostess.
Let me tell you a little story about Piola…
We participated in this international tradition. The story begins with a missionary arriving in a small village in Italy on the 29th of an unknown month.
He arrived upon a very poor house asking for food. He was welcomed to their house and was offered the only thing they had on the table, “Gnocchi”.
The missionary was very thankful for their warm and wonderful food. Soon after the missionary left the house, the poor family found some gold coins right under their Gnocchi Plate…
Since then the “Lucky Gnocchi Legend” has gained recognition all over the world.
Families gather together every 29th of the month and enjoy Gnocchi in order to have luck and prosperity in their lives.
NO, this isn’t the Gnocchi bowls…I was so giddy about this tradition that I didn’t lift the camera once the fun began. We were told that customers still leave money under their plate for their luck to continue.
If you love homemade Gnocchi like I do…be sure to visit Piola on the 29th of the month and may luck and prosperity follow you in your life. Smile.
They have locations in: Italy, Canada, Mexico, Turkey, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Honduras,Columbia, and Ecuador.
