You can just call me Miss Daisy. 🌼 I hired my own personal driver for the summer. The last time I checked, we didn't have any Uber or Lyft drivers in my area so I decided that I would take the matter into my own hands and hire my own driver for the summer. (aka my 21 year old daughter) Her rates are cheap. 😂
I'm not happy about the fact that hiring a driver happened as a result of a broken right foot rendering me unable to drive BUT I do love having a personal chauffeur. 🚙 I'm not so sure that my Uber driver shares my feelings about this relationship though. And she definitely doesn't appreciate the fact that I give her a rating at the conclusion of the ride either. ⭐️⭐️⭐️😂
It doesn't matter if I'm running errands, dropping off a cookie order or going to a doctor's appointment - I love having her by my side. She's at the age when I know that she won't be living with us much longer and our time with her is precious. It really is a gift to be able to have her as my Uber driver because I'm fairly certain that she would opt out of accompanying me on my weekly Wal Mart pick up appointments if she could. #forcedfamilytime 😂
I feel like I'm running even more errands now that I have a companion than I would if I was flying solo. Driving to Atlanta to pick up a camera lens is way more fun when I have a partner. Our chores become an excuse to run through Whole Foods market, stop and pick up food at a new restaurant or swing by and visit and old friend.
I have no desire to crutch my way through a grocery store or ride on one of those little electric scooters, so grocery store pick up has been the name of the game lately. Breaking my foot has forced me to give up control over choosing my own groceries and I've developed a whole new appreciation for the fact that someone is willing to do my shopping for me. 😉
I still like to choose my own produce though so I've been asking my Uber driver take me to the farmers market for my fresh fruits and vegetables. (My Uber doubles as my cart pusher and basket carrier too.) #betterthananuber Our Georgia farmers markets are absolutely bursting with local produce this time of year. The blueberries and blackberries have just started to ripen in my area and that was all the excuse that I needed to make this delicious Mixed Berry Buckle.
Mixed Berry Buckle
1 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
6 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup whole milk
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup blackberries, cut in half
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries, cut in half
Remove from pan once it cools. Slice into wedges.
Mixed Berry Buckle - is it a breakfast food or a dessert? Good news - it's both! If you want to eat it first thing in the morning - call it breakfast. If you're craving a midnight snack - call it dessert. 😉
