Rachael Ray: Hey There!

Jimmy Kimmel: Hello.

RR: So here it is, Jimmy Kimmel's fridge. Now, you challenged me to a burger contest once, yet I see pre-fab frozen burgers. What's up with that?

JK: Those are vegetarian burgers.

RR: Shouldn't you be making your own vegetarian burgers?

JK: First of all, I would never eat a vegetarian burger. In fact, they shouldn't even be called burgers.

RR: I agree with you on that. I've had mighty tasty veggie patties, but they are not burgers. Burgers should involve meat.

JK: But my girlfriend, Sarah [Silverman], is a vegetarian, and veggie burgers are hard to make.

RR: So you have them to keep the lady happy; I got you.

JK: All right, thank you.

RR: You have a whole bunch of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.

JK: It's the spray. I keep meaning to bring it into work because I use it on popcorn.

RR: Now, really, does I Can't Believe It's Not Butter taste like butter? I'd try it on popcorn if it's good.

JK: Honestly, I recommend it only for popcorn. The district attorney should look into suing those people because I can believe it's not butter.

RR: Are you a big fan of chocolate milk? Because you have four squirt bottles of chocolate syrup.

JK: Well, normally, I stand in front of the fridge and squirt it directly into my mouth. But my kids, Kevin and Katie, are chocolate milk fans. And my dad comes over and makes egg creams.

RR: Oh, I love the egg creams.

JK: Yeah, my dad used to work at a diner in Brooklyn, and he's got a very specific way of making them--you have to use Fox's U-Bet syrup.

RR: I could throw down with those soda fountain drinks, too, because I was a fountain girl for years.

JK: Nice. We really should get married or something.

RR: Yeah, I wouldn't be able to see my toes. So what's with the frozen cheese? Are you stretching out the shelf life?

JK: Well, I'm a Costco lunatic, and, of course, they have those huge packages of cheese. So I save it with a vacuum sealer. There's something oddly satisfying about sucking all the air out of something.

RR: Why's the mustard separated from the other condiments?

JK: I guess it gets more use, so it's in front. I love all sorts of mustard. I'm not crazy about your typical yellow variety.

RR: Diane Sawyer has, like, 50 mustards in her fridge.

JK: Wow, 50? That's when you really know you're rich.

RR: I have a really important question. Where is the beer?

JK: I have a huge cooler devoted exclusively to beer. I don't want my stupid friends coming into my kitchen and going through my fridge. I also keep Heineken on tap.

RR: So, last question: If you could have anyone over, living or dead, who would it be?

JK: I would invite my grandmother. I'd love to taste her spaghetti sauce again. Or Jesus. I have some great bumper sticker ideas I'd like to run by him.
