Lunch on the river

Last Thursday, the assisted living office sponsored an outing to Harvest on the Hudson in Hastings. Ms. Kathy Brophy drove the van with Fr. Jerry Nagle, Fr. Dan Dolan and Fr. Leo Kennedy. Br. Tom Hickey drove his car with Fr. Bob LeFebre and me. (I was the designated eater and provided comic relief.)

We'd originally planned an annual visit to the CIA in Hyde Park, which offers a nice prix fixe lunch and dinner around this time of year. But when we learned the French Restaurant wasn't opened yet, we rightly decided if we can't get our escargot we might as well eat in an American restaurant.

While most opted for the eggplant minestrone and baked salmon, yours truly had the roasted red peppers and arugula, followed by orecchiettie in a green and black olive sauce.

Far better than the excellent meal was the camaraderie strengthened by this unique opportunity to dish about the Maryknollers who were back at the Knoll.
