He ended up gaining 10 pounds by the time he was cut loose.
I think I could do a six week chili diet. And that should even need to be blended in Mal's case. 20 days of chili? No problem. Every time I make Chili, I make somewhere between 18 and 30 cups worth and intend to freeze most of it and then end up just eating nothing but chili for four or five days straight instead.
Edit: to keep your chili chewless, I recommend getting your beans from cans packed in juice and cooking it on the slow cooker for at least 10 hours. Even then you may want to simmer the chili in a sauce pan for a few minutes before you eat it.
Thank goodness Chili fixin's are going on sale on Sunday. It's time to stock up.
