"They" were wrong. (Actually, the jury is still out on that.) ristin wanted to double the slow cooker recipe Chunky Vegetable Chilli. As the vegetables piled in it was looking to me less likely that it would all fit. As you'll see from the photos we have made it--just--by scooping from the sides to the middle to take advantage of the curvature of the lid. Ristin is calling this a double win, but as you'll see from the recipe we still have to find room for zucchini and red capsicum. We're hoping the ingredients already in there will reduce as they cook. We have nine hours to go yet.
