Time for some Vietnamese!

With winter well and truly here this delicious little number from Mel's cooking repertoire will be a sure hit with the whole family - even the kids!  It's so yum and best of all easy!  The paste recipe makes enough for two curries so just freeze it until you are ready to cook it again (which won't be long I assure you). Mel's tip is to throw in some broccoli and peas at the end for some greens too!  Also the recipe asks for Vietnamese mint leave and fried shallots etc to serve but if you are like me and don't...

Some Troupe Favourites...

Here at Troupe we clearly love kids hooded towels but sadly we can’t dress our kids in them all day!  As a result we both spend quite a bit of time shopping for our Troupe’s.  With five kiddies between us ranging from 11 months to 8 years we have had a bit of experience finding the best (and the worst) kids brands.  So we thought for a bit of fun we would share some of our favourite kids clothing brands!  I’ll (Ange) be covering the under 3’s and Mel the overs.

Made with Love Chicken Soup - Ripe Deli Auckland

It is...

Do let us know if there are certain stores you think are a must!!  Of course you will always be able to come back here and buy direct too from our online SHOP!  We were so rapt to feature in Oh Baby's "What's New" list last week.

Give the people what they want...

It’s been a busy few weeks for us here at Troupe and we are both having to learn new ways to juggle the family/work balance.  This is particularly difficult when winter bugs and the like decide to take down the smaller members of our troupe momentarily.  But like one of our favourite sayings…its times like these a mumma just has to “Toss your hair in a bun, drink some coffee, put on some gangsta rap and handle it!” On a happy note our hooded towels are doing great and we have been so flattered with the fantastic feedback.  It’s great...
