Ramen Noodles, Anyone?
We were very fortunate that the first couple weeks with Anderson we were provided with many meals from our friends, family, neighbors, and church folks. We enjoyed good meals like homemade chicken and noodle soup, meatloaf, johnny marzetti, lasagna, chicken divan, etc. We feasted for weeks. But now that it has been a month since Anderson's arrival, the meals have stopped and now we must fend for ourselves. Luckily, we were smart and made some meals and froze them before the baby's birth. Earlier this week we had one of those meals in the oven. We were sitting on the couch, playing with the baby, when we hear this POP! from the kitchen. We went in to discover that the oven was no longer on and none of the buttons on the control board would work. Oh crap! Dave went to the basement to see that the circuit was turned off. He turned it back on and the oven started making more popping noises at me. We tested the stove and all the burners still worked but we could not get the oven to turn back on. Doing a little googling, it looks like our control panel on our oven got blown. I don't know if it's the age of our stove or what, but the part was not available locally and we had to order it on the internet. We can't fix our oven until next week! Thank goodness we have the local pizza shop on speed dial.
