{Meal Planning} Slow Cooker Chocolate Zucchini Cake

We visited family for dinner on saturday night and my mother in law made a delicious cake…in the slow cooker.  I cooked casseroles and roasts but never thought about making a cake.  This cake also had a hidden ingredient which the kids never noticed.  This cake was made in the banquet size slow cooker with 7 of us only eating half of it.  Graet idea would be to slice up the remainder of the cake and place in the freezer for lunchboxes.

Here is this weeks meal plan:

I used to plan my meals, well, it went on for 2 weeks, then I gave up. Now I purchase the exact same staples – mince chicken, chicken thighs, mince beef, chicken wings and just come up with the ideas of what to cook as I go with what I have. But I love looking at other people’s meal plan. 🙂 And your zuchinni cake looks DELICIOUS! I must try that out one day!

Your photos look delicious Katrina! I think I’m going to try the carbonara this week. I’m usually not organised enough to meal plan, but I’m halfway there…I have a least of the meats we’ll eat during the week, and then I just have to think of something to go with it. I think I’ll have to go that one step further…your meals look so yummy!

After reading the planning queen’s book again I am determined to menu plan to save a little chaos and last minute throw together dinners.
I will link up later.

Your photos are divine! I LOVE the idea of hiding vegies in cakes! I’ve been meaning to start meal planning again. It would certainly save a bit of sanity at meal times.

I would never have thought of putting zucchini into cake! Your meal plan sounds delish! I meal plan every week, it’s necessary with five kids! I will have to do up a meal plan post so I can link up with you in the future 🙂

I would never have thought of trying to make a cake in the slow cooker. My slow cooker hasn’t had nearly as much use this winter as I would have liked. I love the idea of meal planning for the week, and doing it on my blog might make me more accountable, and might make me try harder to be creative! I will try and get organised to join in next week.
