Daily cake - Hokkaido chiffon cake with vanilla custard

We're on the 3rd day in the year of 2013.. Sonia started school today.. shes super excited abt it and couldnt stop talking abt it yesterday... she misses her friends and cant wait to see em... i guess right now .. shes having her break and I can imagine her mouth munching on sandwiches and talking at the same time hahaha

My cough is not getting any better.. it was better bef we went to USS last weekend.. err did i tell ya that we were there again? Sonia had a blast.. that girl hehehe.. shes just like me... we love wild rides!!! i think she must hv ridden on that dragon roller coaster for like 8 times!! hehehe.. anyway yesterday, I started to cough again.. hubs on the other hand is still coughing away .. his body is a little weak and planning to see his doc again later for antibiotics :o(

Alrighty.. since i didnt hv to send Sonia to school yesterday.. i decided to bake my family's fav cake and also prepared Beef Lasagna for my boys... not an expensive version of beef lasagna but a simplified one... Prego pasta sauce, instant lasagna sheets, minced meat, mushroom soup with half a cup of double cream, chilli flakes, all the dry herbs that i hv in my pantry and 4 packets of shredded mozzarella cheese.. easy peasy... as for the hokkaido chiffon cake... recipe is fm Hearty Bakes.. Love it!!
