The experience Today is Mina’s afternoon to spend with her grandparents and it’s always a conundrum as to eating with or without her. At 5 o’clock, Benji started foraging for food in the kitchen requesting bagels, so i alerted Papa and said we’d better get going.  Luckily, Benji, my little food connoisseur was ready to go [...]

The experience Today is extremely busy for us.  Started early with hula class followed by a birthday part y for Mina’s friend and then we needed to get home to nap before the circus tonight!  So this meant we needed to eat somewhere quick, close and easy!  Ogre’s suggestion: Taco Delite.  He has been trying [...]

Dinner at Sal’s

In: 3 stars, Dallas, Dinner, Lunch, Pizza, Plano

The experience Friday night.  I like to get pizza on Friday nights.  Don’t ask me why.  Even when we weren’t doing this everyday, I like to go out for pizza once a week.  Before we had Benji, we’d go to what was then Double Dave’s (now Chez Joey’s…but was Doughy Joey’s when Ogre reviewed it [...]

The experience Ogre wanted to try Carolina’s, the restaurant that has taken the place of Mario’s Chiquita on 75 over by Chuy’s.  Sounded like a great plan to me.  We all loaded up and headed over.  The kids were excited about it as we drove up to the restaurant until they realized we were NOT [...]

The experience Today Mina had a piano recital to which we all went to, including Grandpoo, Oma, Lolo and Lala.  She played beautifully and I thought we’d go out to dinner after.  Well, that plan fell apart pretty quickly as Lala and Lolo were leaving for Alaska the next morning, and our celebrant, Mina, decided [...]

Good Stuff at The Fish Shack

The experience We decided to stay in Plano for dinner tonight and after some discussion, we remembered that we’d been wanting to try.  This spot has been home to many restaurants over the years, but was originally a Long John Silver’s.  It seems as though it’s back to it’s roots, as it is now the [...]

The experience Ogre told me that he was in the mood for soup tonight.  I suggested Mr. Shabu Shabu and he thought it sounded like a pretty good idea.  Mina was not with us as she was with Oma and Grandpoo.  So, it was just us and the Benj.  We’ve never been here before and [...]

Not so Prima Primavera’s

In: 2 stars, Dinner, Italian, Lunch, Plano

The experience We used the iPhone again to choose dinner.  We drove over not recalling ever seeing this restaurant, but we had a back up plan in place.  Luckily, we did find it and strolled over.  The kids immediately noticed a frozen yogurt place called “Spoonful” and were already making plans to eat there after [...]

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 It was another late start for us tonight as the family waited for me to finish up a meeting downtown before getting dinner.  I suggested Mama’s Pizza in Plano as I’d read that it was what some people considered THE best pizza in town.  We headed over and got there pretty quickly, but [...]
