Re: the bookclub Christmas party (and most meetings) we bring the food. Mostly, we cook or bake, but bring things from Trader Joe or Costco now and then. One lady brings El Pollo Loco chicken all the time. I have brought Church's fried chicken a few times. I try to gear my offering to what fits best with the menu. Saturday I brought the ham. My daughter made the glaze from a recipe online, and it got rave reviews. They all wanted the recipe. A few of us can't host at home anymore for various reasons, so then we go to a private room at Marie Callender's or the Chinese restaurant. It makes for a nice blend. Our local Marie Callender (Northridge) has just recently closed, so we'll have to go to another one (Sherman Oaks) or find something else closer.
