Strawberry Chocolate Marble Cake
I had wanted to update my blog earlier but I was too caught up with housework (a never ending thingy!).. did ironing... oh how i hate ironing... and yep as u might hv guessed.. Sonia was fussy today.. sleeping an hour during day time and climbing up and down the stairs whenever I am not in sight! grrrr.. she cannot sit still .. shes always on the move.. she has so much of energy.. sigh... i guess she takes after me.. :(
Anyway Hairi got home 2hrs ago... we hv not seen him for 2wks and oh boy... he has grown into a young man.. well he turned 19 three days ago.. so happy belated birthday son!!
I cooked him his fav food (asam pedas melaka) and also baked him a marble cake.. errr well honestly, the cake was not in my to do list today.. but.. i just couldnt resist baking it...
