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 Today is really Lala’s birthday.  Mina was very excited to go to Lala’s house and drop off her gifts.  After that, we planned to go out to eat.  We decided to go to Brio’s as I was craving an adult beverage (I don’t have many days when I am not on call).  I called to [...]

The experience We were at Grace’s parents visiting with family when we decided we would make another attempt at eating fondue which I suggested the other day.  It was already 6:00 PM so we got moving lest we get home at midnight.  We opted to go the The Melting Pot in Addison.  We’d been here once [...]

The experience Mina has wanted to go ice skating for quite some time.  I think she saw someone ice skating on one of the Nick Jr. cartoons she watches.  Today, we all had the day off so we thought we try it out.  I’ve never been ice skating either. Luckily, there were no big mishaps and [...]

The experience Ogre had a business meeting on the other side of town and called me to suggest that we meet up in Addison for an early dinner.  Sounded great to me.  Of course, as I was leaving, I was paged about an admission, which delayed me about 20 minutes.  No problem, Ogre said he’d [...]

The experience Well, it’s another night for me at the hospital so Team Phipps had to plan accordingly.  I picked up Mina from school and Ogre drove to the restaurant with Benji.  We decided on Snuffers, which would be a short drive to work for me after dinner.  Mina asked me what type of food [...]

The experience If you follow our blog, then you might recall that Mondays are when Mina has her cooking class.  We try to have dinner on that side of town.  I also try to use our coupons.  One of our readers suggested Red, Hot, and Blue and I was excited to find a coupon in [...]

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!
