|Love Yascone sisters|
Churchill Downs "Star-Spangled Night"
My sisters and I love food. We have traveled literally thousands miles and have planned whole vacations to eat the foods we love. Of course, we make sure that we have some other reason to travel to a town or place, most of the time. Okay, I must admit the three of us could be the three little pigs when we are on vacation. I know Joy and Faith would kill me for calling us the three little pigs, but they would also laugh in horrified agreement. We are fans of great cooks, chefs, restaurants and any good show about food. Don't believe me? Ask Adam Richman (Fandemonium and Man v. Food). He knows food, and he knows us and our love of food. We dream of recipes. We have food parties that are just for us and mom; we cook all day and eat all that night. We have destroyed diets. We have spent large sums of money and planned some of our best events just for the sake of getting that,"wow that food was good" moment.
The pic below is one of our let's watch Korean TV and eat Korean food nights. Faith made everything that night.

Bad food days really piss us off. The worst person to have a bad food day is my Mom. When we go out and spend our money, she expects good food, period. My mom will tell you if you are having a bad food day. She can't help herself, and to tell the truth neither can my sister Joy. Both mom and Joy feel that going out to have crappy food is not only a waste of their money and time, but it is also insulting and they do take it as personal insult. It doesn't help that we can cook great food at home and we have absolutely no knife skills. We go out because we love the energy and don't like cleaning up after making a meal. So...mom and Joy can get a little hostile when our evening's entertainment (the food) is bad. Faith sometimes will call out a bad food day, too. And please don't give any of us dirty plates. I keep my mouth shut most times about bad food. I just won't finish my food; leaving food on the plate is me making a point without saying a word. That said, I will point out dirty dishes. Sometimes I'll keep my mouth shut, but if it is a place I love and trust or think I can trust I will say something. I am not one to take things back. My mom has been food poisoned 3 times. Two of those times were at the same restaurant. That restaurant no longer exists; it mysteriously burned down. The point is piss us off, and we won't be back.
We love food. We appreciate street food. We will eat fast food. We have dined at restaurants that have 4-5 stars and cost us a great deal of money. If I know we are going to a new city I will try to make a food itinerary, but most of the time I don't know where or when we are going. Something happens, we end up on a road trip and we just stop somewhere. When we make random stops sometimes we go with Joy's feeling about a place. Joy's "feelings" have sometimes led us to food disasters, but sometimes they are the most awesome finds ever. When it is a disaster, Faith and I are not forgiving. We may hold our tongues in the actual restaurant, but Joy is going to get an earful on the way home or back to the hotel. Faith, like me, does research on places she would like to go. Unlike me she also uses word of mouth to find new places. She is our social butterfly, which is odd because Faith is really antisocial. She is in her element when she is at a restaurant or at an awesome party, but don't just randomly try to talk to her because although she seems to be a party girl she can be very selective. Faith has some great pictures with food heavy hitters.
