- Dew Loaded Potato Wedges
Snack or Apetizer this dish will certainly hit the spot. It's easy and oh, oh soooooo good! So here is how to make this combination of sweet and russet potatoes topped with Dew Chilli. I like to use the two different potatoes Sweet and Russet. Wash them well and pat dry. Cut the potatoes into wedges, leaving the Skin on, and place them in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, I like to use extra virgin Olive Oil, and then sprinkle with kosher salt and toss to coat. Place the wedges on a baking sheet and roast at 400-degree for 15-20 minutes, turning them once or twice until the potatoes are golden. Crack open the Dew Brick in a Can Chilli. If you are going to eat the dish right away, you'll want to slowly warm up some of the Chilli, If you are having the dish later you can heat later, But take a generous serving of Dew Chilli and cover your potatoes as you desire. Some like a hint of Chilli, others, like me, like a lot. Chilli not used place bowl that can be sealed, or zip lock and seal and freeze to use later. If you're not having the dish right away you can refrigerate until ready to serve. It's a great dish to cook ahead of time. When ready to serve it up, just microwave on high for 2 minutes or until the potatoes and chilli are warmed through. Garnish with feta cheese, sliced cherry tomatoes and cilantro. You can also add other cheeses if you are like me and love cheese. It's that simple and oh so good. ENJOY :)

- Out of Sight. Out of Mind.
The fact is that many Seniors are tucked away in their latter years. Many times forgotten, left alone. Want to know what it feels like? Well, Just take the current COVID-19 lockdown and the affects it has on your life no matter your age. It's been hard, anxiety sets in, fear takes control and the hope someone will just notice, notice you are still here. You are getting a little taste of what many Springfield area Seniors experience every day. Making life worse for our Seniors is when something like COVID-19 happens. Seniors tend to suffer even more. Look at the Senior Death Rate, especially in nursing homes around the country. It's a crisis in itself. Many seniors are limited in what they can do, l The money raised goes to buy and prepare Nutritious meals for Springfield area Seniors. These Seniors either than can't get out, are too scared to get out, or have no one to help them. Our Seniors pay nothing. The cost of the food, delivery and employees are paid by the Dew and the gofundme page through your donations. The Dew Good Program, Food for Seniors, was designed and launched to help as many Seniors in Springfield, Illinois and surrounding communities as possible. We at the Dew were not sure how to do it. As you know the restaurant industry has been devastated by COVID-19. However, we had to come up with something to help our Seniors in our community so we turned to you. The Dew set up a gofundme page (gf.me/u/xuqtgq) The money raised goes to buy and prepare Nutricious meals for Springfield area Seniors. These Seniors either can't get out, are too scared to get out, or have no one to help them. Our Seniors pay nothing. The cost of the food, delivery and employees are paid by the Dew and the gofundme page through your donations. Each week we are finding the demand gets greater. We have added 8 delivery drivers to deliver meals every Tuesday at lunch time to Springfield area Seniors. We had to also add cooks. Please know, the Dew makes no profit off this program what-so-ever. Today we prepared a really nice pasta dinner for Springfield area Seniors. They were bagged up, and delivered by our Dew Good Team. But funds are running low and we are turning to you, our community, to help us keep the Dew Good Food For Seniors Program alive and serving Springfield area Seniors in need until this crisis is over. We know money is tight for many people. But If you can please make whatever donation you can by clicking here gf.me/u/xuqtgq. You Really can. Together we can. If you are a senior who would like us to make a delivery to you. Please call Brad Issacs at the Dew. 217-679-1910. Brad is the District Manager and is over seeing this program. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org When contacting us please let us know if you are calling for yourself or someone else. Please leave a phone number. Brad will reach back out to you for all the details and we will get that hot meal out to your door on Tuesdays. This program will continue as long as there are funds to cover it. We are a small company struggling ourselves just trying to do our part. Help our Seniors. This is why we need your help to ensure this program stays vibrate. Too many Seniors are counting on it. We've seen it first hand. We can't let them just be out of sight and our of our minds. gf.me/u/xuqtgq Thank you. Mike and John and the Dew Good Team.
- THE PANDEMIC.....
It wasn't too long ago, children where going to school, restaurants and bars were serving up some of the finest dishes, local bands thrilling crowds, retail shops were showing off their goods and the cheers from stadiums hosting sporting events echoed through the air. That was just a few weeks ago. Then COVID-19 hit. Bringing life to a stop, changing they way we go about our daily routines. Life as we knew it STOPPED! The hardest hit industry is the restaurant and bar industry. One of the highest employment industries which worked on very small margins came to a grinding halt. No warning, it all just stopped. Bartenders, Waiters and Waitresses, Cooks, Managers and Owners, our Neighbors our brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers suddenly found themselves empty handed and scared. While John and I are in the industry we are talking about, ours is not alone. John and I were sitting in one of our empty dinning rooms the other night. Dew Pub and Grill on North Grand. We were thinking about how just a few weeks ago that room was filled with people laughing, enjoying themselves and listening to one of the many local, and very talented bands that played at the Dew on Friday Nights. We haven't heard from that band in a while, but worry about them as we worry about the staff on our payroll. You see that night we realized just how many people are impacted by just one restaurant, or bar that closes down. Temporally or Permanently. That impact is tremendous. But, Many won't make it, very few will. We reached out to some of our friends in the entertainment field. It's generally been a bummer one band leader told us. Most of the band members are full-time professional musicians who depend on income from gigging. That's booking a night to perform. But they told us that while their livelihoods have "come to a screaming halt," what hurts most for them is not being there for people during an extremely difficult time. "We don't play music for the money," he told us, "We do it because we love bringing people together and connecting with the audience, and we yearn to do that again sometime soon." John and I know that to be true. Our local artists know they won't become rich by what they do but they are enriched by the people they touch. We saw it with every band we booked at the Dew. These are remarkable people. Again, while we worry for our future, the future of our immediate staff, we now see there is so much more to worry about. Every business touches so many lives directly and indirectly even if they are not often heard of. Their existence has a great impact on our community and the lives of those who live in our community. Many of these businesses will be lost. We are hearing from several local owners who are now not looking forward to reopening. They can't. Their only option is to pack up what they have and close for good. This past week they have been in their businesses pulling equipment for good and letting their staff know they will not be coming back. You will soon be hearing about these folks. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and those who depended on them remaining open. With that in mind, and our hope in writing this, is to ask you, our family, friends, neighbors, our community to support each other. Be kind to each other, Contribute the best you can to help get all of us through this crisis. And if you would offer up a Prayer that we will soon overcome and defeat this Virus that will help. Knowing no one is alone will save many people even if they lose their businesses, their livelyhood. Until then we stand with you. We will fight the best we can and We look forward to the day our children can return to school, our restaurants and bars serve up their finest, our music from our local artists fill the air, cash registers at our retail stores ring often and the sounds of our stadiums once again are full of life. Thank you. Stay Safe. Can't wait to be together again. Mike and John
