This is Violet (tonight's dinner is below). I'm starting with Violet because we had a stressful day today with her and didn't put much thought or time into dinner because of it. She's lost a lot of weight lately and we're still in the process of trying to figure out why. She had to see a specialist in Richmond today for some tests and it took many hours longer than we anticipated. We had to leave her there for the better part of the day and though we did have a good vegan lunch at the Harrison Street Coffee Shop that was the extent of the fun. When we finally got home it was dinner time and we didn't feel much like cooking so we threw together a relatively quick pasta dish. I sauteed fresh peas, mushrooms and garlic in lots of olive oil, then added a little chard along with olives and capers and a fresh diced tomato and seasoned it with dried basil and salt & pepper. I mixed in some spaghetti and that was it for dinner.
