March 2011 Desktop Calendar

March 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 March is a picture of a chèvre frais cendré — ash-coated fresh goat cheese — taken at a small market stall that was giving away sample slices.

Not everyone realizes that cheese is a seasonal product too, and that artisanal goat cheese can only be made between early spring and early fall, when the goats are lactating to feed their kids. (Fresh goat cheese sold outside of that time period is usually made from frozen milk.)

So this month’s calendar is all about celebrating the arrival of the first rounds of fresh goat cheese. I hope you saved a little of that multigrain starter bread from last month’s calendar to go with it!

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.]

    A very happy post.Specially because it’s like a little reminder that spring is almost here!

    I am writing about new beginnings in my blog too. It would be lovely if you and others can visit.

    I can think of no better way to herald the coming of spring than with a beautiful image of some fresh, crumbly goat cheese. Thanks so much for sharing this!
