There’s nothing better than a fresh batch of muffins! But, sometimes you come to realize that it’s time to replace your old muffin pans. You know…like when they look like something that went through the wars? Yes, it is time!
Silicone muffin pans make baking muffins easier than ever. And today we’re sharing this 20% off sale at Linen Chest on Trudeau 12-cup silicone muffin pans. As with any muffin pans, be sure to still grease the pans a bit before adding the muffin batter. You can use less fat greasing the pans when you use silicone, but you’ll still need some. You can use either butter, margarine or oil such as canola oil or sunflower oil. By greasing the pans, this will ensure that the muffins will pop out easily.
And – if you love making egg muffins (also known as muffin cup quiches or muffin cup omelets), then silicone pans make it a lot easier to remove these from the pan. You simply pop them out! You can’t so that with a metal pan, let me tell you…
Canadian Seniors will receive a one time covid-19 relief payment this week as announced by the government earlier in the week. The goal is to help seniors curb rising costs for things such as grocery deliveries and prescriptions. During this pandemic, seniors have been one of the hardest groups affected. This payment is one way that the government wanted to lightened their load. This one-time payment is tax free.
Canadian Seniors Receive Covid-19 Payment Relief, How Much?
Canadian seniors can receive up to $500.00 in a one-time payment from the government. Here’s the breakdown from a recent article below:
“Any senior who is eligible for the Old Age Security (OAS) pension will receive a $300 payment, and an additional $200 is being sent to seniors eligible for the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS).
The federal government estimates there are currently 6.7 million seniors who are eligible for the OAS pension and 2.2 million who are eligible for the GIS. These payments are set to total $2.5 billion.”
Canadian Seniors Receive Covid-19 Paymet Relief, When and How?
The payment is directly made to any senior who is eligible. No application is needed to apply. Here are the payment details from the same article:
“Seniors who reside in Canada can expect to receive the payment by direct deposit or cheque this week, whereas seniors who reside outside Canada can expect this one-time payment in July for those on direct deposit, or by cheque with delays given international postal disruptions,” said the government in a statement.
For Canadian seniors, any help is good as they have been hit hard by COVID-19. As a result, they have to take extra precautions to stay safe. This has resulted in taking on a greater financial burden with limited income for many. Because of that, Canadian seniors will gladly accept the covid-19 one-time payment as every little bit helps.

The Canada Student Service Grant program (CSSG) was announced a few days ago to help students who could not find a summer job. Here are some of the programs details below:
Post-secondary students will be eligible to earn up to $5,000 this summer through a new volunteer service grant.
The grant is available for a range of volunteer work, including mask making, tutoring, researching animal behaviour and designing exercise programs for seniors.
The grant will be worth between $1,000 and $5,000, depending on the number of hours completed. For every 100 hours worked, a student is eligible for $1,000, which means someone must volunteer 500 hours to receive the full grant. (This works out to receiving $10/hour of volunteer work this summer.)
Finally, the program runs until October 31, 2020.
Canada Student Service Grant, Who is Eligible?
Here are some of the qualifications needed, as outlined from a recent article:
Students and recent graduates between the ages of 15 years old and 30 years old can apply for the program.
To qualify, an individual must be enrolled part-time or full-time in a recognized post-secondary education program in the spring, summer or fall of 2020, or must have completed post-secondary studies in December 2019 or later.
Canada Student Services Grant, How to Apply?
To apply for this program, the government has launched an online platform for the program called “I Want To Help.” Once you go to this website, you can register as a volunteer. Also, you can search for organizations who are looking for volunteers in your area. This is what the website says below:
“There are plenty of service opportunities available for students looking to get involved in their community to support Canada’s response to COVID-19. By volunteering with a local organization this summer, they can gain valuable experience and obtain the Canada Student Service Grant in recognition for their service. New opportunities will be added regularly.”
The Canada Student Services Grant is more opportunity to help students during this difficult time. However, the program is limited as only 10,000 new jobs will be created. Also, volunteer prospects could be limited due to lack of variety of volunteer opportunities. Hopefully, this will increase in time. However, this program gives students another option of economic help. And having options is a good thing, especially during these stressful times.
Hooray, it’s time for Summer Drink Days again! Were you thinking that maybe Summer Drink Days weren’t going to happen at all this year at McDonald’s? Fear not, bargaineers! Summer Drink Days are almost back…in fact, they get started on June 29 this year. So, when you’re hitting the road for an awesome (socially distant and pefectly safe) road trip, you can hit up a Mickey D’s and get some refreshing cool beverages for the whole family. Yummm…Here are the delicious icy drink options this year:
Fountain drinks of any size – Soda, pop – Varieties include Coke, Sprite, and I believe there’s often iced tea.
For $2 you can get:
Small or medium Minute Maid slushie. These are a fairly new menu item at McDonald’s, and they come in a variety of flavours: Lemonade, Fruit Punch or Blue Raspberry. Sounds super refreshing! (Varieties may be different depending on where you live.)
Real Fruit smoothies – Available in small size only. Strawberry Banana or Wild Berry flavours.
Small iced frappe – Sort of like a Starbucks Frappuccino! Available for $2 in the small size.
For only a buck or two, you can seriously cool off with a delicious drink from McDonald’s. Very handy as the weather heats up.
