Gnocchi, Uruguay

Unless you've been to Uruguay on the 29th of the month, you've probably never heard of Dia de Noquis, or Gnocchi Day. The custom of eating gnocchi on the 29th is simple. By the end of the month money has run out, and the combination of potatoes, flour and an egg makes for a budget-friendly dish. Many Uruguayan restaurants advertise their gnocchi dishes, and a favorite is the classic, noqui de papa, or potato gnocchi.

Don't forget to put some money under your plate as you eat. According to tradition, doing so ensures good luck and prosperity for the following month.
