Minus Mommy at Mooyah

The experience Yesterday, prior to our trip to Jasmine, Mina said she wanted to go to Sushi Awaji.  Seeing how that it is against the rules to go back a second time we had to say no.  She was devestated so we promised we would go this evening. Sometime this morning, Grace had apparently waken [...]

Jasmine: Uniquely Chinese

In: 3 stars, Addison, Chinese, Lunch

The experience First off, that’s their catch phrase, not mine.  I thought it was a little weird, but I think it’s true.  In a good way.  You’ll see.  But back to the task at hand.  We decided that it had been awhile since we’ve had Chinese Food.  We decided to use another coupon from the [...]

The experience If you recall, we tried to go to Picasso’s Pizza and Grill over the weekend, but Ogre’s GI illness prevented us from trying it out.  It’s probably a good thing that we decided to just skip it entirely because Ogre would have been excessively sorry had he missed this meal!  Ogre has been wanting [...]

The experience Sometimes I don’t even know what day it is!  For most of the day I thought it was Wednesday, when Mina goes to Music Class with her grandparents.  In my head, I was considering dinner based on that and the fact that I’d be working tonight.  Late enough, though, that I could still [...]

The experience Dusty suggested going to Poor Richard’s Cafe for breakfast yesterday and when I asked him if it was good and did he liked it, he shrugged and said “It’s not that great.” Uh, okay. Why would we go there then? Instead of responding with that smart remark, Ogre suggested we try Cindi’s New [...]

The experience Okay, Murphinians, this one’s for you!  As always, when the Phipps team has a strategy, something goes wrong.  Today things went very wrong…for Ogre anyway.  He woke up not feeling too great, said something about his stomach being queasy, but it wasn’t too bad.  We planned a few days ago to go to [...]

The experience I am going to preface this post by saying there was quite a bit of disagreement amongst the Phippsters for star rating and title of the post.  I’ll get to that later.  Oma was out of town this week, so we invited Grandpoo (these are Mina and Benji’s grandparents) to dinner with us. [...]

The experience Today I needed to run some errands at Willow Bend Mall and had plans with the kids around dinnertime, so Ogre and I decided to take Benji out to lunch with us.  Mina was in school today and, once again, we were short a Phipps. Dusty, though not as girly or cute, would [...]

The experience I kept Mina out of school today since she wasn’t quite 24 hours over her GI bug.  The kids spent the day at Lolo and Lala’s.  I did not think Mina needed to go out again tonight for dinner even though she’d been fine all day today, so we picked up Benji and [...]

The experience Today was family sickness day.  We stayed home all day today due to Mina’s being sick beginning at Loverhorns aka Love and War In Texas and continuing at Cafe Brazil.  We didn’t want another repeat so the plan was one of us would take Benji to eat while the other stayed home with [...]

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!
