The experience Well, this pregnancy is going to be expensive.  One of the only meals I can tolerate and almost enjoy is sushi.  I think it’s because they are small portions.  Anyway, I told Ogre that I was in the mood for sushi and he just headed off down 75.  I wasn’t sure if he [...]

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 Well, I told Ogre I wanted Greek food because I was kind of craving a soup one of our readers has mentioned (I think it’s like  a lemon chicken soup).  I did not necessarily tell Ogre why I wanted Greek food.  Anyway, yesterday, he saw a new Mediterranean place in the Shire and [...]

The experience Today we headed out for lunch and I gave Ogre three options, he headed to Jason’s Deli, which was actually the last restaurant of choice, but would still do.  We walked in and, once again, were lucky to beat the rush and ordered straight away.  Benji was happy to stand with us as [...]

The experience Reading a few threads on the mommy forum I’m part of made me want Mexican food for dinner tonight.  We’ve actually been to Casa Milagro once before with a group of friends, I remembered that it wasn’t bad, so we thought we’d head there tonight for dinnner.  We picked up Benji from Lala’s [...]

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 With no plans once again for dinner, we headed out and discussed as we were driving where to go tonight.  We decided that the area around UTD was promising as there are a lot of restaurants and many that we have not eaten at for childsplate.  Ogre has been wanting to try out [...]

We can’t find the cord to download pictures of the sony camera, so no pics for now.  Sorry! The experience Ogre keeps threatening me with eating at Whataburger.   I think that would make me sick if I ate there right now.  I countered with “I need to eat soup.”  I won.  We ended up at [...]

Can’t find the cord to the Sony Camera, will post pics when we find it. The experience Today we would be going to celebrate my birthday at dinner!  Since we wanted to keep our options open, we decided we’d better hit a new restaurant for lunch.  We decided on Lenny’s Sub Shop.  Unfortuntely, when we [...]

The experience Today was Benji’s birthday and I had to take Mina shopping so she could buy him a gift.  I also had to catch up on a good bit of work so it was already early afternoon and I still had to squeeze in lunch for the blog.  I went to grab Mina from [...]

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!
