The experience This afternoon and evening were busy (as usual). My car needed new tires, so we dropped off my car in the afternnon, then I had to take Mina to hula class, which is all the way across town while Benji napped. Our original plan was to meet somewhere like we usually do, but [...]
The experience Today when Ogre asked me about dinner, I remembered that on Tuesday it’s Kids Eat Free. It was Tuesday, so we set out to find the nearest Applebee’s. After getting a little lost, we finally happened upon it. We were seated right away and noticed a lot of tables with kids.
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 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 Benji awoke and seemed to be in very good spirits after his evening of fever and vomiting. We decided we’d trek out for lunch and after some initial indecision, Ogre made the command decision to try Boston Market (which Mina used to think was Steak and Shake because they both have the black [...]
The experience You may have noticed on my two previous posts, that I’ve been suggesting Steak ‘n Shake for days now. I’ve been craving a Root Beer Float (pregnancy perk!) and every time I do, Ogre responds, “yeah, well….” and then we go somewhere else. I recommended it again today and lo and behold, we [...]
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 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 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 [...]

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!
