October 2011 Desktop Calendar

October 2011 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 October is a picture of the patty pan squash and pesto soup I like to make with larger patty pan squashes. It’s perfect for the transition between summer and fall. (The smaller patty pan squashes I will roast and combine with chickpeas in this warm salad.)

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 Clotilde,

    This is not connected to the posting but I have a question (hope you don’t mind) If I’m right you once mentioned a shop called Jdutous , I’m not sure how you write it and can’t find an address, do you know what I mean and do you have directions? Thanks in advance.

      Hello Ed, you’re probably refering to G. Detou ? You’ll find the address and a map in “>my post.

    hi Clotilde, I just made that soup again last week, trying to use up the last of the patty pans. I made it last year too, and remembered how good it was. Thanks for your blog, I look forward to it each week!
