Pants problem

I dress for comfort and convenience, and I want pants with deep pockets. Buying online makes me happy, and trying on one item of clothing after another is more irritating than fun for me. I'll do it when I must.

For years, I've been wearing XL sweat pants from Land's End, but I've lost a little weight, and now the XLs are too loose, but L is still too small. So is 16W.

You'd think it wouldn't be so hard to find drawstring pants with pockets in an XL, but I haven't succeeded. Failing that, recommendations for pants with belt loops? Pants that run large or small so that I'm not between sizes?

I've thought about adding velcro tabs to the waistbands of the XLs. I realize this would create lumps, but there are already lumps from the stuff in my pockets. Any thoughts about modifying the XL pants?

Cabbage recipes?

I have a cabbage. Normally, I'd just chop it up into a stirfry (cabbage is very nice in stirfry), but it occurred to me to ask people about their favorite cabbage recipes, partly because something good might turn up, and partly because I'm going to write more about that God of Love, God of War thing, and I want to have a break from religion, politics, and other fraught subjects.

Thanks, everyone. I've tagged this because now I have a library of cabbage recipes. I'm tending towards trying something with cream and/or butter, but I'm especially noting ritaxis's compendium for a lot of good ideas, especially if I want to try a little light pickling.
