So I went to REI, and came back with a $59 personal titanium pot.
Yes, I admit I can go crazy at REI sometimes.
It's amazingly light, but I haven't had the chance to bring it on a backpacking trip yet, so it's greatest selling point hasn't been proven just yet. Anyway, I've been having a ton of fun cooking with this pot.
Last weekend I was out camping at the Beckler River Campground, and I made myself a hearty breakfast of steel cut oats cooked with almonds, cashews and chocolate.
Sounds fancy, but it was literally just a pot of boiling water, large spoonfuls of raw oats, and a packet of Trek Mix from Trader Joe's tossed into the pot for good measure.
Best breakfast ever.
