Packing List

I’m packing for my niece’s wedding back in Idaho and making a list of all the things besides clothes that I need to bring along – the wedding gift, cords for my kindle/iphone/camera, the book I borrowed from my sister-in-law and maybe a jar of the August Bright nectarine jam I made a few weeks ago as a thank you for lending me the book.  Then I read food blogger David Lebovitz’s list of what he takes for a weekend away in order to be a good guest.  The list includes frozen cookie dough, crisp topping, two types of salt, tinned sardines, a coffee maker, a vegetable peeler, a saucepan, a cookie sheet and a cleaver.

OK, I’ll pack two jars of jam.

How ’bout you? What do you pack in order to be a good guest?

    I’m the worst house guest apparently! I will often volunteer to do the dishes.

    • A couple more shots from last weekend, thanks to my sister-in-law Karen. Our Loosli ancestors homesteaded here west of the Tetons. Most of us cousins are pretty far flung now so it was great to be together where it all began.
