Your mission should you choose to accept is to do as the DeBoers do. I'm extending the following challenge:
Attempt to make meals out of whatever food is left in your pantry, fridge and/or freezer only, until you're absolutely down to nothing.
One of the running jokes on Ruggles is Team DeBoer's empty fridge and pantry. So instead of taking offense I'm going on the offense by saying everyone should try it. It's no longer a flaw; it's a skill.
