The experience Dr. Mom would be working this evening so it would be up to me to take Mina to Hula class in Garland with Benji in tow.  I got off a to a start at my regular time only to find lines of cars on my usual route.  I took a few ill-advised shortcuts [...]

The experience The first day back from vacation is always so hectic!  Ogre and I had a meeting downtown mid afternoon, I had a patient to admit at the hospital, the kids needed to be picked up and Mina had Hula lessons -not to mention the unpacking, laundry and “pre cleaning” for the maid that [...]

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 So today I’d be going alone to dinner after taking Mina to her hula class.  Benji would be along for the ride. Grace claimed there were no restaurants in the area so I figured I be out of luck eating near the class.  On the ride over I saw about 10 restaurants 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 [...]

TGI Friday’s…er, Tuesday

In: 3 stars, American, Garland, Lunch, Plano

The experience Another day, another restaurant.  I actually suggested eating at the Pho restaurant on Spring Creek tonight.  Well, turns out there is no Pho restaurant in Spring Creek (near 75).  Old sign, I guess.  Our back up plan was go to TGI Friday’s.  I was actually thinking about the one in Firewheel, but then [...]

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 This morning, Mina took some standardized test as a prerequisite for a school we’re considering putting her in for the next school year, for her effort and for being good at school last week, the plan was to take her to Chuck E. Cheese tonight.  I think I once vowed on here that [...]

The experience As Mina and I were headed home to pick up Ogre for dinner, I got paged by the hospital.  Looked like I’d be doing another admission tonight.  Unfortunately, that meant a quicker, closer dinner than what I had planned.  I gave Ogre some choices and we headed in that direction.  As we neared [...]

The experience Today Mina was at church with Oma and Grandpoo so the rest of Team Phipps had to have dinner without little Mina.  We decided that we were in the mood for Mexican (when are we not in the mood for Mexican?!).  I thought it’d be fun to try a restaurant suggested by one [...]

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!
