The experience Today both Ogre and I were home this morning with Benji, I asked Ogre if wanted to get something to eat.

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!
