The experience I was Mina’s chauffeur again this evening driving a ways to her hula class.  Ogre and I decided we’d meet after her class and thought that our plan a couple weeks ago to meet halfway would work again, so we decided on the El Chico right by the Bone Daddy’s we went to [...]

The experience Today is Dusty’s birthday and the request was for margaritas and fish tacos.  Would be easy if we didn’t have to hit a new restaurant!  A quick check on Chowhound led me to Agave Azul, which Ogre says he’s been wanting to try also.  Sounded good!  So we all piled into the Tahoe [...]

The experience Today I had a day off with no commitments, appointments or anything else that I had to do, so I thought we should go out to breakfast.  Unfortunately, pickings are getting VERY slim for breakfast choices that we haven’t eaten at already this year!  The only restaurant that I could think of that [...]


The experience Well, Mina was accepted to the private school we applied for so we thought we’d reward her endurance of the testing and interviewing (sheesh!) with a special day.  We’d be going to a movie and then eating at the restaurant of her choice.  Of course she’s not going to choose a restaurant we [...]

The experience  Ogre and one of my best friend’s husbands have been working together and although we’d hope it would mean that my friend and I would also get to spend more time together, it hasn’t really worked out that way.  While chatting on the phone with her (while my husband was at their house [...]

The experience It’s a slippery slope, my friends.  The suggestion by Ogre’s best friend, Dusty, was to go to Pei Wei…his treat, he received a $50 gift card for Christmas.  Ogre’s argument, Mina and I went to PF Chang’s.  Now, I am not going to deny my sweet little girl a restaurant because it’s chain-y.  [...]

The experience We headed out with no destination again tonight.  I am working downtown this week, which means I leave for work at 6:15, which means I like to get to bed early, which means we have to eat dinner early or quickly, preferably both.  Well, we didn’t head out of the house until 6:30 [...]

The experience I have a thing against eating sandwiches at any time other than at lunch.  So, if we are ever going to blog about a sandwich joint, we’d have to do it at lunch.  Today was that day.  Actually, we had a few other choices we considered including Freebirds, which I suspect Ogre was [...]

The experience Ogre and I had some last minute shopping to do today and dumped the kids off at my mom’s house.  We picked them up around 5:30 for dinner.  All afternoon, I was craving Korean food and by the time we were headed out to dinner, I was starving!!  I searched the internet for [...]

About Child's Plate chronicles our journey to find the perfect family restaurant. We are looking for restaurants with excellent food and a great attitude towards kids, even the whiny, cranky ones! We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. 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!
