June 2010 Desktop Calendar

June 2010 Desktop Calendar

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 June is a picture of my macadamia maple granola, which makes a splendid topping for yogurt and stewed fruits, and is featured in my cookbook in the Creamy Mango Ricotta recipe.

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!

[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.]

    Hi Clothilde,
    I’ve been reading your blog for a few years now, even bought your book and tried many of you recipes, with great delight. This granola is to die for, and when my 12 year old son smelled the maple syrup aroma he nearly dived into it forgetting he’s allergic to nuts! I came up with a nut free version for him: rolled oats, rice flakes and shredded coconut, keeping the maple syrup and butter. He loves it so much, he eats bowls of it 3 times a day, dry or with yogurt. The best part is the expression of sheer bliss on his face and his comments: “Man, this is soooo good, well done Mum!”
    Alors voila, since I can’t possibly take all the credit, this is to thank you for inspiring me!
