Camp stove has arrived

My Esbit 5 piece camp stove arrived.  I washed it, filled it with fuel and boiled some water.  I was a bit surprised how fast it went through fuel, but it boiled water just fine, and cooled down quickly afterwards.
I filled it up and fired it up a second time to make some instant mashed potatoes and some tea, which it did a fine job of. We'll see how I use it on the upcoming trip. I was thinking I might pop some green beans and some cheese in a Ziploc bag, and mix that in with the potatoes. Sounds decent for dinner, yeah?  Oatmeal and tea for breakfast? I can see that I might have to learn a few new recipes.
