This Lithuanian dish was a staple at all family gatherings and every day suppers at my Gramma's house. She was 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). This was our version of comfort food.
