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 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 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 [...]

Can’t find the cord to the Sony Camera, will post pics when we find it. The experience Today we would be going to celebrate my birthday at dinner!  Since we wanted to keep our options open, we decided we’d better hit a new restaurant for lunch.  We decided on Lenny’s Sub Shop.  Unfortuntely, when we [...]

The experience Mina has wanted to go ice skating for quite some time.  I think she saw someone ice skating on one of the Nick Jr. cartoons she watches.  Today, we all had the day off so we thought we try it out.  I’ve never been ice skating either. Luckily, there were no big mishaps and [...]

The experience On this chilly evening, we needed to head to Target so Mina could buy herself a new pair of shoes to replace the new ones I bought her.  She ruined the other day and felt bad about it.  She has made enough money selling her pies on sweetmina.com that she had extra after [...]

The experience Ogre had a business meeting on the other side of town and called me to suggest that we meet up in Addison for an early dinner.  Sounded great to me.  Of course, as I was leaving, I was paged about an admission, which delayed me about 20 minutes.  No problem, Ogre said he’d [...]

The experience Today when I called Ogre to go to dinner, he said he wanted to eat somewhere quick because he had a lot of work to do.  First off, Mina eating and quick has never been compatible.  I did, however, choose a close restaurant since that cuts down on overall going out to eat [...]

The experience Today I got a flyer with a coupon in the mail for Christina’s Mexican Restaurant.  Hmmm, after spending two nights in a row at the hospital and having had a well-deserved massage today, I thought margaritas sounded like a great plan to accompany dinner.  I made sure to tell Ogre of my dinner [...]

The experience If you follow our blog, then you might recall that Mondays are when Mina has her cooking class.  We try to have dinner on that side of town.  I also try to use our coupons.  One of our readers suggested Red, Hot, and Blue and I was excited to find a coupon in [...]

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!
