Transcript for Rachael Ray's Football Tailgating Feast
Get ready for a fall feast. Our wonderful friend rachael ray is sheer just hours before her show kicks off for your seventh season today? I'm excited. It's the first show, a brand-new home. A brand-new set. First lady michelle obama is your first guest? The first lady is the first guest for the whole show. I'm so excited. Wonderful. We're going to get to that in just a second. But today, you're starting with zucchini fritters. Fritters is great dish because you can serve them for breakfast, lunch and dinner and put in all of your fall things. I have zucchini that I shredded or you can use butternut squash. Any single vegetable? One of flour, one teaspoon of baking powder. Whisk together a cup of milk and one egg.

There's vegetarian options. They're sweet, savory. It's a great pull-out guide. Chili ten ways. It's a great issue. Those are baby whoopie pies down there. Really? Yeah. As in a pull-out. Today, you've got michelle obama. We worked on that initiative together, the "let's move" campaign. We hid a healthy cheeseburger. And her, I call it "her" now because she makes a terrific avocado ranch dressing. We play carnival games. We have a great chat at the kitchen table. We had a blast. I hope everyone tunes in. Excited to be back for our seventh year, everybody. Just doesn't seem possible. Congratulations on your huge success and your wonderful meal And your first day with the first lady. We're next door neighbors to you in a lot of cities so it's a big morning for us. Thank you for starting out a
