I was hankering after a sweet dessert tonight, so I threw this together. The ingredients are all FODMAP-friendly according to the standard lists.
1 tablespoon butter
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
6-8 walnuts chopped or broken up by hand
1. Heat butter in small skillet on medium heat until it melts
2. Slice banana across into circles 3/16″ thick
3. Cook bananas for a couple minutes in the butter
4. Add the maple syrup
5. Add the walnuts (already chopped or crumble into the pan with your fingers)
6. Let the liquid just come to a boil
7. Serve into a small bowl
Serves 1. To scale up, just add another banana and set of ingredients per person
I am a big fan of and try to follow David Allen’s Getting Things Done (GTD®) methodology. This post catalogs my process and tools for working and living.
Todoist GTD app. Not perfect but best I’ve found for me. Lets me stay in sync across Mac, Windows, Outlook on Windows, iOS on iPhone and iPad and web so I have ubiquitous access on and offline.
BusyContacts Replacement for Apple Mac Contacts application. It shows contacts by address book (associated with different Google, Exchange, iCloud or Yahoo! email accounts) and allows moving them from one address book to another by drag and drop! Great for getting rid of duplicates or segregating groups of people to different accounts.
BusyCalendar Replacement for Apple Mac Calendar.
Desk Desktop publishing client. I’m using it to compose this post. It’s really beautiful but still a work in progress for full functionality. The author has been working on it for over a decade as a labor of love and it shows. And he is clearly committed to continued addition of features. I’m eagerly awaiting the ability to post Pages to WordPress along with Posts. This Post really should be a Page since I’ll keep it updated as my tools and process change over time.
MarsEdit Desktop blog editing client. Not as pretty as Desk, but fully featured and easy to use. Supports posting to WordPress Pages.
Mail Apple email client. I’ve used Postbox a bit and I like some aspects of it but it doesn’t support Exchange which finally proved to be a deal breaker for me. Mail 8.2 seems to have cured the high CPU consumption I experienced in other releases that prompted me to look at other clients.
I’m a big fan of WiFi, but I totally get this. We pretty much have electronic-free dinners at home with exceptions when we all feel the need to look something up during a discussion.
I just upgraded to Lion (aka Mac OS X Version 10.7) on Wednesday, July 20, 2011. Since I didn’t get to do any real study ahead of time, I have been learning on the fly as I try to keep using my Mac for the day to day things I do. As I stumble on to differences, things to do and fix or deal with until they are fixed (especially third-party applications), I’m keeping a list. I’ll keep updating this entry as I find new things. Since this is driven by my personal activities, it is quite haphazard and not a replacement for various resources around the web on preparing for Lion and Lion features.
Things I Like:
Spotlight search results Finder window allows changing view, including to columns
iOS style spelling suggestions
Select and open multiple attachments from a Mail message
Things I Don’t Like
Application associations with file-types are lost
Things That Are Different
Up and down on scroll ball on mouse are reversed from Snow Leopard
Things That Have to be Updated
You can’t see the scrumptious pictures of cockroaches and other delectible insect pests that played in the animation loop for the Orkin ad. Fortunately it only played through the critters once. Love that ad placement algorithm…
