Let's talk pants... and waffles

DPP_085

I have six pair of pants I'm giving away — all because they're too big. Which gets me thinking: what do you do with your clothes that are too big/too small?

I tend to give away the big stuff. But I have under-the-bed boxes full of clothing that's too small. Not too long ago I was a size 6. Then came "relationship" weight and "I just got a new job with new hours and can't find time to exercise" weight and then the "OMG I just ate six giant cookies in one sitting" weight.

I kept all the small clothing in hopes that I would be at that size again some day, all while buying new clothes that actually fit. I guess keeping the smaller clothes was a good call. I shouldn't have to buy any new pants for a while. The stack of too big pants will be going to charity soon because I plan to never need them again.

Now let's talk waffles. Funny, how I talk about too big pants and then transition into these indulgent waffles. Oh well! They were pretty good!

Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles

Maybe not good enough for 500 calories per waffle. The calorie count wasn't a suprise. They're brown sugar bacon waffles afterall. I have the complete nutritional information here, if you're interested.

I washed it down with coffee.

French press coffee

The rest of the day was pretty normal. A banana with leftover rice pilaf (not pictured).

I love the shape of waffles (esp waffle-presses that add their own designs!). yours look great!
