Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of an impending ice storm could stay Mom and Dad from their determined goal to make it to the Greater Kansas City Caged Bird Show last March [2009]! Mind you, they had no intention of bringing home a birdie, but they were in dire need of a few items that a parront can’t find for their fids in any stores in the Kansas City area. They found everything they needed…ME ! ! !

Okay, Corkus Porkus…let’s give everybirdy the WHOLE story, shall we? Corky’s dad and mom had been talking about finding a pal for their 6 year old Green-Cheeked Conure, TidBit, for quite some time. His mom had even considered a beautiful little Green-Rumped Parakeet she met at the local pet store. But somehow, it just didn’t ‘feel’ like the right match, so she let that opportunity pass. While browsing at the bird show, she spied the most gorgeous little Turqouise Mutation Green-Cheek, that she just simply could not walk away from. Corky’s dad knows when his wife’s heart has just flown the coop, so all there was left to do was pick up supplies for the new baby too!

Hi! My name is © Corkus Turquoisius Maximus [aka Corky!]

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Rougemont, NC.

My "formal" name is © Corkus Turquoisius Maximus. But I get called Corky, Corky Porky, Corkus Porkus, Corkimorkus (And any other “…orkus-Y” sounding variation Mom comes up with in the moment!)

6 years old   M

Green-Cheeked Conure

I’m not real adventurous about taking treats yet. But just the other night, Mom nearly passed out when I actually took a morsel of Pizza crust from her! Although, she suspects that the Stitch’s Spicy Popcorn she gives me while we watch Sunday Night Football is going somewhere OTHER THAN the bottom of my cage. (…I’ll never tell!)

You can pretty much find me either hangin’ out as close to the side of my cage next to TidBit’s cage as I can get. Or layin’ on my back on the floor of my cage playin’ with my toys. (That REALLY panics Mom ‘cause she can’t see me right away when she looks in my cage!) I’m just starting to feel comfortable outside of my cage anywhere but on Mom’s finger.

I’m a pretty easy goin’ Little Fid. About the only thing I don’t like is Mom gettin’ too MUSHY for too LONG! (Geeze, can’t she just give me ONE kiss and be DONE WITH IT?!)

When I wake up every morning…there’s Mom. When it’s time to go nite nite every evening…there’s Mom. Whenever I want attention…there- ’s Mom. Whenever I DON’T want attention…there- ’s Mom! (Oops…maybe that shoulda been up in “My pet peeves:”)

I’m not quirky…I’M CORKY!.

Like I just said…”I’m not quirky…I’M CORKY!”.

  Hi Corky
Since its going to be Thanksgiving in a few short weeks I think that we are all going to meet in the kitchen and start preparing some things for the Thanksgiving feast we will be having here at the Castle! We will go shopping for some of the supplies and then come back to the castle and cook and bake them up! The first thing on our list is some Apple Stuffing!
APPLE STUFFING


¾ cup of butter
¾ cup of milk
1/3 cup of chopped celery with leaves
1 cup of chopped onion salt to tast
1/2teaspoon of marjoram
½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper
8 cups of soft bread cubes
2 cups of washed,quartered,pared and diced apples

1. In a saucepan mix together the butter,milk,celery,onion,salt,marjoram,cinnamon and pepper; cook over low heat until the vegetables are tender.
2. Blend the bread cubes,and apples.
3. Lightly toss the seasoned,melted butter with the bread mixture.
4. Cool the stuffing completely.
5. Stuff the turkey just before roasting
6. Leftover stuffing can be baked in a covered baking dish in the oven with the turkey during the last half hour of roasting.

We'll all go shopping for all the ingredients and then we can come back and make up enough for everyone to share!
Wishing you a great day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Love,King Dixie

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Corky
Easy Cheesy Broccoli Bake
4 to 6 servings


1 large bunch broccoli ½ cup (2 ounces) shredded
(about 1 ½ pounds), separated sharp Cheddar cheese
into stalks
1 can (10 ¾ ounces) condensed ¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs,
cream of celery soup tossed with 1 tablespoon
melted butter
1/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Boil or steam broccoli for just a few minutes, so it stays crunchy. Meanwhile, in a medium-sized bowl, blend the soup, milk, and Cheddar cheese. Drain broccoli and arrange in an ungreased shallow 6”x10” baking dish. Pour soup mixture over broccoli. Top with bread crumbs. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

Combine the pumpkin, corn syrup, spices, and nuts in a large bowl. Fold in the whipped topping. Spoon mixture into crust. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

or 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup chopped onion ½ cup vegetable oil
½ teaspoon seasoned salt ½ cup whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon dried oregano 1 cup biscuit baking mix
½ teaspoon garlic powder 3 cups grated zucchini

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, add all the remaining ingredients, and mix well. Pour mixture into an ungreased 9-inch square baking pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. To brown top, put under preheated broiler for the last 2 or 3 minutes. Cool for a few minutes, then cut into squares.

NOTE: If you have the time, give it a zip with chopped fresh garlic instead of garlic powder.
