I have. Quite recently. Yesterday, in fact. I was headed to a company meeting in Georgetown. And to get to Georgetown, you have to drive through downtown D.C. And through something called Dupont Circle. Before yesterday, I didn’t even know what Dupont Circle was. Now, I never want to see it again. Dupont Circle and I are NOT friends.
I spent almost 2 hours trying to find K Street. I never found it. I missed the meeting. I balled my eyes out while trying to find anything that looked familiar. I realize that some people can get lost and still behave rationally. I am not that person. I am pretty sure everyone that crossed my path though I was insane.
On days like that, you NEED simple things. I couldn’t handle complicated. I still don’t want to handle complicated. So here is some very simple pumpkin butter. It’s a really delicious fall treat. I spread mine on both English muffins and whole wheat toast. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s not complicated. And it’s so very fallish. There is nothing more comforting on a rotten day than a great fall treat.
