**So, apparently there was some sort of huge gas leak or something that happened a few days ago, and basically everybody in town – including restaurants and the hospital – had NO natural gas connection because it had to be turned off. We have a gas stove and oven, but we check it last night and we were able to turn it on. So, Stephen and I thought that we had lucked out and kept our gas. Fast forward to lunch today: I was wanting something for lunch that I’d seen on Pinterest, but I needed one thing for it. (I hate it when that happens.) I actually needed to do a big shopping trip, but I just wasn’t up for making a long WalMart trip by myself, so I decided to run to our small grocery store to pick it up. When I got home, I turned on the stovetop to get a pan hot. The flame started and I went to work prepping other things while my pan was getting warm. Several minutes later, I threw some meat on my pan and realized that it wasn’t quite hot enough yet, as my meat didn’t sizzle. I thought it was strange…and eventually realized that the gas wasn’t working. Apparently we were just using what little bit of gas was left in the pipe? Anyway, it kind of ruined my lunch plans and I was back at square one – basically no food at home, not even bread for sandwiches. SO, lunch out. Thankfully, my gas was turned back on before dinner so I was able to make these Chicken Cordon Bleu Wraps. (They were yummy!)
