This weekend is my 12th annual Chrismukkah celebration.  As you can probably imagine, things have certainly evolved since we first started hosting these in 2005.  I was fresh out of college and a first year grad student for our first Chrismukkah party.  It basically consisted of friends, cheep beer, cheep vodka, and some snacks from the grocery store.

Fast forward more than a decade and we — and our parties — have grown up just a tad.  We now fill our home with 60+ friends from near and far and enjoy delicious food, quality beverages, and have a great time.

It goes without saying that hosting this many people requires a lot of food, and isn’t exactly inexpensive.  Not to mention that last year was our first year hosting with a baby.  It was… hectic.

I failed to think about how much time is actually occupied by said baby and the whole day was rushed, stressful, and chaotic, trying to prepare food for everyone with an 8 month old on my back.  This year, we’re dialing it back just a little, and letting BJ’s Wholesale Club help out with some of the food preparations.

Now, don’t get me wrong.  I’m still making a ton of food from scratch.  My freezer is stocked with cookies and brownies I’ve been baking.  Each night this week, I have a set to do list of food prep for the party.  Buuuut… they’ll be a few more premade things than usual on my list.

We’re big fans of BJ’s Wholesale Club.  We signed up for a 3 month free trial the first year we moved to Philadelphia, specifically for our holiday party.  Even when I make everything from scratch, buying ingredients at BJ’s saves us so much compared to our normal grocery store.  (And, as you can probably image, I fly through those giant bags of flour and sugar and chocolate chips in no time!).
