A very special thank you to MissScrooge who spent hours designing this blog and coming up with creative ideas. I’m also very excited to have the expert contester RoseofBlack. She will be sharing contests and her knowledge and experience with you. A couple of contest gurus will also be joining our editorial team soon.
I hope you find the Canadian Contests Blog useful and may the luck of the Irish be there with you 😀
The storage times listed below are approximate months of storage for some food products assuming the food has been prepared and packaged correctly and stored in the freezer at or below 0Â°F. For best quality use the shorter storage times. After these times, the food should still be safe, just lower in quality.
Fruits and VegetablesÂ 7 – 12 months
Poultry 6 – 8 months
Fish 3 – 6 months
Ground Meat 3 – 4 months
Was the food packaged properly?
Cool all foods and syrups before packaging to speed up the rate of freezing and help retain the natural color, flavor, and texture of the food.
Packaging materials must be moisture-vapor resistant; durable and leak proof; protect foods from off-flavors and odors; and easy to seal.
Good packaging choices for freezing foods include rigid containers made of plastic, glass or aluminum; semi-rigid aluminum foil pans; plastic bags; and flexible wraps including plastic, foil and laminated paper. For best moisture-vapor resistance, be sure to choose bags, wraps and boxes made especially for food freezing.
Allow enough headspace so food can expand without breaking package seals.
Label each package; include the name of the product, any added ingredients, packaging date, the number of servings of amount, and form of food.
Use freezer tape, or pens and labels made especially for freezer use.

Tomato lovers rejoice!Â Last week Boo brought tragic news to tomato addicts everywhere.Â A number of fast food chains including the big M had pulled tomatoes from their menu indefinitely while the FDA attempted to locate the source of a tomato-related salmonella outbreak.Â Although the FDA hasn’t been lucky enough to track down exactly where the issue started (they think it’s either Florida or Mexico) McDonald’s has announced that you can expect to start seeing a little red slice back on your Big Mac in the next 7-10 days.
I got a call from 1-800-575-9090 today. While the phone was ringing I quickly Googled the number and found it was Rogers Pay As you Go so I answered. It was an automated message thanking me for being a loyal customer and giving me a free 14 digit pin for $5 worth of Rogers Pay As You Go airtime 😀
Will this $5 change my opinion of Rogers terrible customer service? No! It’s one of the worst ever and their automated system is a nightmare.
Retailer: Sears Minimum amount you need to spend: $35 CAD (before taxes) Duration: June 14 – July 4, 2008
What you get:
There were no details about the products (for some reason, many Estee Lauder bonus gifts never list their products in the flyers) but you get two Pure Colour Long Lasting Lipsticks and more in a red, white and blue tote bag. From the photo, it also looks like you get a manicure tool set, nail polist and mascara.
Since most Canadian stores have withdrawn Bisphenol A bottles from their shelves, a lot of them are accepting refunds of the used hazardous bottles. They will either refund you back your money or give you a store gift card. In any case, it’s better than just throwing them out.
The Forzani Group Ltd., Canada’s largest sporting goods retailer, and Hudson’s Bay Co., which includes the Bay and Zellers stores, said Tuesday they are removing BPA products and will refund customers who bought the bottles at their stores.
The same will apply to most stores.
To know if your bottle contains Bisphneol A, check the recycling codes (triangles) at the bottom. A code number 7 may (but not necessarily) indicate that it contains Bisphneol A.
Someone sent me this regarding Zellers GTA still accepting refunds 🙂
Zellers GTA are is allowing anyone with used Avent Bottles to exchange them at there local Zellers Store for a full exhange of the bottle, Ie; 1 old Avenut bottle = equal 1 new FREE glass of BHA Free baby bottle. I just exchange 15 bottles this week for Born Free Glass Bottles.
