June 1, 2009
At the beginning of every month in 2009, I am offering C&Z readers a new desktop calendar, i.e. a wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.
Our desktop calendar for June is a picture of gariguette strawberries taken at the Anvers greenmarket.
Maxence is in fact growing strawberry plants in one of our window boxes this year, and like the wild strawberries of a few summers ago, they are in great shape. Of course each of our two little plants is delivering its fruits sparingly, making us extra grateful for each of the delicious berries they yield, but also making it necessary to turn to the pros for the rest of my needs -- I have my mother's strawberry tart and ichigo daifuku to make!
What about you -- care to share your favorite ways to use fresh strawberries?
Instructions to get your calendar are below.
Here's how it works:
1- This link will open a new window (or tab) displaying the right wallpaper image for your screen.
2- Right-click (or ctrl-click for some Mac users) on the image, and chose the option that says, "Set as Desktop Background", "Use as Desktop Picture," or something to that effect -- the exact wording will depend on the browser you use.
3- If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference screen (on a Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; on Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose "Fit to screen" as the display mode of your background image.
4- Enjoy, and see you in July for the next calendar!
