When studying for exams, I found it much easier when I had something to munch on in front of me.
Baby carrots, a banana, apple or a bag of raw almonds (and plenty of water) filled the hunger void and kept me going at the library.
Popcorn is what I snacked on most when studying in my room but cheese and crackers were my absolute favorite!
And if you look in the fridge, for one more ingredient, you can turn cheese and crackers into a heavenly study snack I call Cracker Marmellata e Formaggio Panino.
Look in the Fridge for…
The combination of firm salty cheese and juicy sweet grapes is divine! The crunch of a whole grain cracker makes them taste even better together!
Fresh grapes may not behave between two crackers but grape jam does.
How to Make
Simply spread 1/2 tablespoon of grape jam (or your favorite fruit jam) on one side of each whole grain cracker.
Lay Marble, Colby jack or American cheese on top.
Place the second cracker, jam side down, on top.
When asked what you’re snacking on while reviewing your notes (or someone else’s), be sure to say…
“It’s a Cracker Marmellata (short pause) e Formaggio (again, short pause) Panino.”
More fun than saying cheese and crackers. Good luck with studying and taking those tests!
