Food Related Computer Wallpaper?

How many Chowhounds here have (or are willing to admit they have) food related wallpaper on their computers?

I have a few hundred food related snapshots on my computer that I have downloaded from various free wallpaper sites.

  1. Not on my computer, but I often have food photos as my phone wallpaper, generally as a mnemonic device related to something I want to (remember to) make. See it in the paper or a food mag? Snap, and to wallpaper. Keeps at least one point of inspiration readily available when I am otherwise flummoxed in the WhattaIWannaEat? games.

    1. re: cayjohan

      I do but most of them are pics of food I have made together with my son. They make me smile!

    2. I do, on both my personal and work computers. My current wallpaper is a lovely picture of a spice market in India.

      1. I stare at a photo of an outdoor market in Dili, Timor Leste on my desktop. I'd like to be able to eat bird's eye chilies everyday.


        1. The wallpaper on my desktop is the same photo in my Chowhound avatar (the full photo, or actually a rectangular version of it, not just the circle that now shows on posts), tiled. Rows and rows of little plum almond tarts on a sisal background, which pattern I find aesthetically pleasing. It's textural, but not distracting or overbright.

          1. wouldn't that make you hungry all the time?
