Notes

This Lithuanian soup was a favorite of my Dad's and Brother's! So much so that my Brother learned to make this so he could have it at any time. My Gramma Monica was a first generation immigrant from Lithuania who made her way to the United States and settled in Chicago. She married an American man of Lithuanian decent, had two children (my Dad and my Aunt), divorced, and remarried a first generation Lithuanian man (my Papa).
