At the beginning of every month, I am offering C&Z readers a new wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.
Our calendar for July is a picture of zucchini blossoms shot at Alain Passard’s vegetable garden a few years ago. It was a memorable visit that inspires me to this day, and in case you missed my report then, I invite you to take a look at the post and the accompanying photo set. If you’re stuck in the city this summer, perhaps they will provide a measure of refreshment.
And as far as zucchini blossoms are concerned, I’ve tried stuffing them in various ways and it was fine (especially when the filling involved fresh sheep’s milk cheese), but really, nothing beats frying them.
Instructions to get your calendar are below.
include("/var/www/cnz/blog/include/calendar.inc"); ?>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.
[Note: Readers of this blog live all around the globe, and I am unable to provide localized versions of the desktop calendar at this point. This is why I’ve opted for the international standard, by which a large majority of countries abide, and which states that Monday is the first day of the week.]
