Delicious. That is all.
Oh. And easy.
And it will make you feel better about the fact that the day after you make this is the first day of school.
And feel better about the rain.
You know what makes you feel even better about all of that? Wine.
But not too much. There will be loud children surrounding you by 8:15 AM.
But it will be OK.
You packed more of this in your lunch (in lieu of actual fruit).

Special thanks to The Divine Mrs. D for telling me what to call this (why was I confused about something so simple...school's about to start...I'll likely be confused quite a bit).
