Keep that long handled spoon - great for eating out of a quart-size Ziplock without getting food on yourself.
Consider FB cooking. All you need is a cozy (insulating bag) and a means to boil water. FB cooking really cuts down on the weight, improves the menu, reduces the mess, and shortens the cook time.
My "cook set" consists of an REI TI long-handled spoon, tea kettle (Primus LiteTech, GSI Halulite, etc.), alcohol stove, and cozy. And I carry a cheap plastic insulated coffee mug for coffee. If you are interested, do a search and/or start another thread and we can talk more about this. I even bought some nice lady's cookbook, which significantly improved my menu.
