Snax and Black Catz

Not to be confused with Hunx and His Punx. Since the month of June is OVA (not Hova) I am back at Whole Foods, trolling the aisles for new treats. And how.

Plucots. Not to be confused with pluots, which are more plum than apricot. These are more apricot than plum and are delicious. And cute!!!


              Oh yes I did. On a 99 degree day, it kinda melted in my bag. BUT THAT'S OKAY.


Bulk section pistachios.There is something intensely satisfying about cracking open the shells.

Errybody was raving about these Earth Balance cheezy poofs so I had to:
I shared some with an "occasionally vegan" friend who approved. "Those aren't bad. Those aren't bad at all. Can I have a couple more?"
I bought a couple CLIF bars back for the wedding to keep in my bag, but they were unnecessary. I don't love to eat these because of the ingredient list and also they sort of hurt the roof of my mouth? But they are good on incredibly warm days when I don't want to make a meal, or even think of exerting effort.


I went to my parents house yesterday because we needed to TALK and also their house is way cooler. PLUS I got to hang out with Cicero and Seneca, those wild beasts:

                             Guard kitty Cicero on the stoop, scaring unwanted visitors away.
                                    Smart Seneca, chilling under the bench in the yard.
They are almost exactly a year old now! Look how tiny they were last year! Also, I can't leave my baby Hax out of all the cat vanity shots:

 I bought this tub to wash my clothes in but it is better suited as a reclining chair for Haxan.

And here is the poor fuzzy baby passed out from the heat. Should I give her a haircut??? I don't think she would like that.

  1. Ahhhhh kitty pics!!!!! OMG so freaking cute! Haxan in the tub may be the cutest thing I've ever seen. Such a sweet face <3

    The plucots are so cute and I love the dinosaur label!! So adorable. I'm a dinosaur loving weirdo haha. The s'mores bar looks great and the EB cheezy puffs have been all the rage! I feel the same way about Clif Bars which is why I only ate them when I was working weddings as a quick calorie fix on the go.

    Stay cool! It's going to be brutal this week but the heat should break this weekend!

    1. Isn't she a sweetie? Not as fun when she's puking up hairballs, though. But I'll take it.
      Yeah, I thought the dinosaur sticker was cute.
      CLIF bars should just start sponsoring weddings.

  2. I've not had any plucots, but they sound delish! Wow, now I want a smores dessert. Ha ha! I also have heard good things about the cheezy poofs ;)

    Awe, I remember when they were in their kitty-hood! Still cute, all grown up. Cats are good for snuggling in unusual places! Feel free to give Haxan a nice back scratch for me!

    1. Oh, the s'ores was totally worth it. A couple years ago for Christmas my brother bought me all 3 flavors of the Sweet and Sara marshmallows and I devoured them so quickly I've since tried to stay away...but the s'mores was too much to resist.
      I love finding cats in their hiding spots, ha! I'll scratch Haxan if you ruffle Remy for me.

  3. So how bitter is the skin of the plucots? I peel my plums because I just. can't. take it. If you do decide to give Haxan a haircut, please record.

    1. The plucots aren't bitter at all! I know what you mean about the plums. The skin is softer on these, but if you're that sensitive maybe you still won't like it? But give em a try, I think they're delicious.

  4. Pluots I know and love, but plucots? I haven't seen those but will look next time I'm near produce.

    I agree that the Puffs aren't bad but I'm haven't been inclined to buy them — yet. And I agree with you about Clif bars ingredients.

    As for cat cuts, I don't think you should cut her fur. How about a nice cool marble slab to lie on instead? Of course, there's no guarantee she'd lie on it, but you could always use it for a pastry board.

    1. Did you taste the puffs in a VVCon swag bag? maybe I wouldn't have bought them if I'd had a sample, but I was too curious not to pick em up.
      Haxan so far has crammed herself behind the toilet and under my bed as the coolest spots, but a marble slab sounds much more regal.

    2. Yes, at VVC, and I accepted several extra sample bags from people handing them out on the street. I'd happily eat them but I hardly ever buy snacks except for food should taste good chips. I still have stuff from VVC. Ate a bar today.

  5. I've never of heard of plucots before, either, but I think I'd really like them. What a cute sticker they put on them!

    'Tis the season for smores, so I don't blame you for wanting one. I just happened to post about some crazy ones we made. Love smores!

    I love the kitty photos. Such cuties and it's amazing how fast they grow!

    1. Do try to find the plucots if you can. They're so nice. Or maybe just apricots will do.
      Loved the s'mores pudgie you guys made - It must have been even better with the peanut butter.

  6. Excellent post. It never occurred to me to actually buy one of those Sweet & Sara Smores. Just seemed too expensive but now I will. Are the EB Puffs better than Pirate Booty? You and your folks can always find common ground in your close proximity to phenomenal felines.

    1. They are kinda expensive, but you could probably get 3 desserts out of it.
      I haven't had pirate booty in a long time, but I do like it. The puffs are pretty similar, but you don't get the vegetables you do with the booty... Although I think I like the texture of the puffs better.

  7. I LOVE plucots! They're the perfect size and the perfect sweetness too. That's it...I'm buying one tomorrow:) haha thanks for the inspiration! And what a cute kitty!

    1. Yeah they are a perfect size! A nice sweet snack. Too bad I haven't seen them at the farmers markets, though.

  8. I've never had a plucot! Must try! Also, the kittehs are adorable. Eep! So cute! I have a friend whose partner is in vet school, so she's always fostering the kitties that come through the hospital, and she always has black cats, because they are the hardest to adopt. Apparently people actually think they are bad luck and stuff. crazy!

    1. must try, yes! I've heard how hard it is for black cats to get adopted. It's ridiculous and so sad! I swear to only have black cats.. I want an all-black cat coven!

  9. Ahhhh, I saw those smores thing at a Whole Foods in Austin, why didn't I buy it when I had the chance?! Sadface. Also CATS!

  10. Love the snack rundown. But, the kitty shots take the bag. Hax is so beautiful! I showed Cleopatra what black cats with two eyes look like. :-) She meowed in protest.
