This is an old Polish Recipe... that was given to my grandmother Mabel Kennedy Sullivan from a friend of hers from the Boston Store in Chicago in 1918, after Mabel married her hero husband Frank B. Sullivan (one of the divers from the Eastland Disaster in Chicago, Illinois in 1915).

This is Polish Comfort Food to the Max!!!

One of our favorite Polish meals.
