I’ve finally given up hope of ever again buying a good fitting pair of blue jeans. After a certain age, all the working out in the world isn’t going to change the fact that a stretchy waistband just feels so comfy. So, now that I’m no longer in search of well-tailored apparel, I have lots more time to search the grocery aisles for the freshest, tastiest ingredients.
