Gravy (1)

adjective; folk etymology
Simple, easy, or facile
 
This word is used by the young adult population to describe a task, situation, or condition that is extremely simple and easy.
Etymology : The Old French grane – sauce or stew changed its meaning to express something that is not difficult to do. It probably arose from the fact that gravy is a relatively easy dressing to make compared to other sauces.
