|Mr. and G & E after we got the food set up.|
They had a wonderful experience and we were so glad that we brought them along. They got a little bit of special attention and behind the scene tour with the help of a GDL camerman. He was so nice to show them the "cut in" of the traffic and weather reports during Good Morning America.

Mr. prepared all the food for this segment yesterday. You can connect directly to the Emeals Paleo Holiday Menu here: Emeals Paleo Holiday Menu
Kale Salad with Apples, Oranges and Walnuts
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1 teaspoon honey
¼ teaspoon pepper
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 lb kale, stems removed
4 radishes, thinly sliced
1 Granny Smith apple, cored,
1 navel orange, peeled and sectioned
½ cup chopped toasted walnuts
1. Whisk together vinegar, mustard, honey and pepper in a large bowl. Gradually add oil, whisking until blended.
2. Thinly slice kale; add to dressing in bowl, tossing to coat. Let stand 30 minutes.
3. Before serving, add radishes, apple, orange segments, and walnuts; toss.
Note: Look for lacinato kale in the store. It is the most tender type
of kale that wilts easily in a salad such as this one.
There is no reason to skip the pumpkin pie this holiday season. Especially since you can make a few substitutions that allows you to stay on the Paleo track. No sugar crash induced coma after this healthy pie!

I can't wait to try this for supper tonight! I have only had a bite of Mr.'s first test pie and it was yummy! I'm most excited about the Poached Pears! My house smelled soooo good when they were cooking last night!
