Cocktail Reubens

Pat Duran


From a friend of my mom's Mrs. Hetrick. She always make these for St. Patrick's Day celebration-when there was a block party. One year we had a progressive party and these were served at the house that served only appetizers and drinks.The second house served salads,rolls and drinks.Grandma,had the main-course of chicken and rice and pork sausage and sauerkraut and drinks.The last house served desserts and drinks.This was a block party so no one had to drive anywhere-the last house served coffee! These were fun parties.Especially fun at Xmas-although my friend lost her shoe in the yard.
