She wasn't happy unless she was feeding someone. When one would walk in the door, she wouldn't say "hi", she said "are you hungry?".
A lot of Gram's food was typical Lithuanian. We grew up with it all, and our friends started loving it all too. The funny part was watching some people try to pronounce the names of some of the foods!
When I would spend the night, she used to make me these incredibly light, yet crisp pancakes.
As I located this recipe here, and tried them on my own...in the first bite, I knew. They were Gram's. This is what she made me all those years ago.
Thank you Gram!
