Cooking kit

This is a project to create a light weight cook set. Requirement is to be under 6 ounces total weight and nest together.
So, here it is:
Heineken cook pot (24 ounce can) with lid.
Wing "stove (for fuel tabs) and aluminum wind screen
Cup (7 1/2 ounce coca cola zero can) with lid and foam cozy (1/4 " thick foam).
Bowl (2 1/2 cup plastic bowel) with a "bubble pack" cozy
Light my fire spork
Small lighter
Nylon stuff sack
Roll up windscreen and put in Heineken can, put cup with lid in Heinie pot, put wing stove (in plastic bag) into cup, put lighter in cup, put lids on all of these. Put in stuff sack, nest this into bowl, place bowl in bubble cozy and wedge spork down between bowl and Heinie pot.

Total weight 5 3/8 ounces! Not bad. I will test this set up next hike to see how well it works.
Possible changes might be to switch to a folding spoon, so that this will also go inside the cook pot
