No Apples to No Jam

Hey guys! Sorry for being MIA! However, between my big research paper, Calculus take-home test, lab reports, new job and a big function this coming weekend, the reviews may become a little sparse until I figure out how to balance extracurriculars, like blogging, with all of my newly introduced activities that require more attention. :/ Anyhoo... Here is a product that I photo-ed in this yummy post, but never got a chance to review in full:

My mom loved it. My dad loved it. I loved it. It was a HIT! The ingredients are pretty straight up and I love the buttery smooth pine nuts that are dispersed throughout. The flavor is pleasant with a nutty, garlic-y flavor profile accentuated by a touch of olive oil and a dash of spices.
However, I had greater plans than to just dump this in a pan and dish it up! ;) The nutritional profile? Well, take a looksie:
Me gusta! For those of you who missed out on 11th grade Spanish...I like it! :D

I added fresh chopped, bright red bell pepper, golden, sauteed onions and protein-packed black beans for a tastttty meal!
MMM...I wish I could have had that for dinner instead of a frozen veggie burrito, a starbucks coffee drink and a 100 calorie pack of popcorn! phaha
I also wish that I could sit down with Gilmore Girls, a cup of steamy sugar cookie tea and my favorite cookbook. However, I have no kitchen, no cookbook and no time.
I guess dark chocolate and my research books will have to suffice! ;)
Have a fabulous week! Hopefully, I will be back with foodie pics sooooooon...and a giveaway. Fingers crossed.
