Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
A happy memory was that every Christmas eve and Easter (good Friday) Grandma Mary always made kluski noodles (they still sell them) and false sauce (a marinara). I wish I could do more but no one wrote down recipes. It was always a pinch of this, a pinch of that. Grandma D always adjusted to ingredients available.
