The experience Grace suggested this evening that I go eat with my dad since she couldn’t make it.  I said OK, but why?  She mentioned my mom was out of town.  I had no idea.  So when my dad arrived to pick up Mina as pre-planned, I asked about it.  They were going to go [...]

The experience After running a few errands and ending up in Fairview, we decided we’d eat in Allen for dinner.  We’ve always wonder about the bright pink restaurant that is set a little ways back in the Village shopping center and decided we’d try Nate’s Seafood and Steakhouse.  The kids mentioned that they were “starving,” [...]

The experience Today, the Ogre wanted meat for dinner.  Not just any old meat, steak.  Thanks, my wonderful husband who knows that I gag at the thought of steak.  HOWEVER, I can’t let our lives stop because of my crazy nausea and reflux. So, I became the martyr for the evening and agreed to steak tonight.  We [...]

The experience Mina was at church with her grandparents, so it would just be the Benji at dinner tonight kid-wise.  Ogre was in Irving all day, so we decided to meet halfway-ish in Addison for dinner.  There’s a place that was recommended to me long a go by a good friend (the Irving location actually), [...]

The experience Ogre and I decided to go out to lunch with Benji today.  My parents were unavailable to babysit him today and I returned from rounding in time to grab lunch with the boys. I can’t go too far, and the pickings are getting slim in the Plano area, but we recalled that we [...]

The experience I’m writing this over a week after actually going there, so my recollection of the experience is not going to go so well.  I know that Ogre and Mina love this place and in the past, I’ve been a little bit “iffy” about reviewing it for childsplate.  Afterall, it’s Hooters.  That just doesn’t [...]

The experience Today we headed out for lunch and I gave Ogre three options, he headed to Jason’s Deli, which was actually the last restaurant of choice, but would still do.  We walked in and, once again, were lucky to beat the rush and ordered straight away.  Benji was happy to stand with us as [...]

The experience Last night’s storm made for a later morning for me this morning and, thus, later getting home from rounding.  I suggested we get a quick bite for lunch somewhere and Ogre did not want to waste a meal out so he turned it into our childsplate adventure for the day.  We decided on [...]

The experience Today we were against wrought with the decision of what to eat for dinner tonight.  Nothing interesting came to mind and Ogre heard a Macaroni Grill commercial on the radio TWICE in arow and he must’ve taken it as a sign that we should here tonight.  I wondered if we had already eaten [...]

The experience Today was Benji’s birthday and I had to take Mina shopping so she could buy him a gift.  I also had to catch up on a good bit of work so it was already early afternoon and I still had to squeeze in lunch for the blog.  I went to grab Mina from [...]

We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
