As an aside, most folks would be surprised what you can cook when you are backpacking. We were out 28 days with 10 of us. We broke up into cook groups and ration planned, carried a certain amount of each ingredient per person. We made pizza, tortillas, bread, quiche, mac and cheese; all with bulk materials and "The NOLS Cookery" cookbook. In several years of my wife and I backpacking, and 2 summers as a boy scout backpacking guide, I never ate a pre packaged meal on the trail. Even when I worked for a school that could afford them, I meal planned out of real food as much as possible.
And with a little work you can do all that on these alcohol stoves.
