In the afternoon, Bill, (the husband of a customer of mine) came over to "tweak" my computer.
He installed Opera, which is a browser like Internet Explorer. Well, he says it's better. It's a lot
easier to control how you accept or decline cookies, which are little codes websites put on your computer to store your surfing preferences. Most cookies don't do anything, but a lot of them, especially third party cookies, can.
I can see this is becoming way to technical, so let's just say we downloaded it and installed it and Bill took me for a test drive in it. The best part of Opera is it is a safer browser than IE. Especially if you like to surf "questionable" sites. (I didn't ask, but I think I know what he meant)
Not that a healthy male like myself would ever go to those kind of sites!
He saw that I had an Antivirus program and
also have Spybot and Ad-Aware.
So he also wanted me to have CCleaner.
Another free little program.(I always like free!)
This program is much more thorough than the
disk cleanup utility found in system tools.
It found 648mb of trash on my computer!
Even after I ran the disk cleanup utility!
After Bill left. Craig fixed another Delicious meal.
One of his specialties. String Pie.
Of course, here's the recipe, cause I know you'll want it!.
- 8 ounces spaghetti
- 1 med onion peeled and finely chopped
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1/4 cup chopped green pepper

- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 teaspoons butter, melted
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- Cook pasta, drain.
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- Cook beef, onion, green pepper in large skillet over medium heat until meat is brown, stirring to separate meat. Drain drippings.
- Stir in spaghetti sauce
- In a large bowl, combine cooked spaghetti, Parmesan cheese, eggs, and butter; mix well.
- Place in bottom of 13x9 inch baking pan.
- Spread cottage cheese over top
- Pour meat sauce mixture over cottage cheese.
- Bake 20 min or until hot
- Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top of casserole and heat until melted.
Serves 6-8 ( The picture above is a piece that was left over that I'll eat for dinner Wed.)
And of course Craig never follows recipes to the letter. He always improvises somewhat.
Here he added chopped tomatoes and green onions when ready to serve.
