What do you have for small lightweight packable yet effective cooking and eating gear?

GSI set. I think it is called bugaboo. 2 pots and lids that double as pans. Coated aluminum with a handle.
I prefer a 4.0 in my Jeep since I have the minivan to go fast and get good gas mileage.

Ive found that I like a small charcoal grill better than gas. It takes longer but its less mess/cleanup and tastes better.

Plasticware and paper plates are easier than dishes... just throw them away.

The years of camping trips with WRJC taught us quite a bit about camping. Sure its cool to have all that shiny gear but its also a PITA to clean and maintain. I prefer throw away over anything else. Really, the only thing you need in terms of dishes are a skillet and grill tongs/spatula. Everything else can either be thrown on the grill or doesnt require cooking (sammiches)

I like my old MSF whisperlite that uses white gas for quickness. I use either a titanium (Evernew) or aluminum (12cm Imusa) pot to cook/eat in. I use it initially to heat water which also brews my instant coffee that I put in an actual cup (or similar) before adding food to the pot.

Lately, I've been messing with small alcohol stoves and wood burning stoves (for backpacking) as they are substantially lighter than the old whisperlite with all its necessary accessories. I like the Emberlit wood burning stoves (the original is a good size that's fairly easy to use (ie light, and keep burning). I like my Minibull Designs alcohol stoves, and would like to check out the simple Fancy Feast stove.
