Make-ahead meals for destination bachelorette

My_Pet_Toaster | Nov 8, 2013 06:25 AM

Hello! Long-time lurker, first-time poster here! I've diligently searched the archives for threads on make-ahead freezer meals, cooking for large groups, and family beach week meals, but was hoping to get some more specific recs from the 'hounds.

I'm in charge of the food for a Friday afternoon - Sunday morning destination bachelorette shindig in a beautiful mountain lodge. Guest list is seven lovely ladies, and we'll be dining in exclusively, since the mountain is pretty far-removed from civilization. I'm hoping to do some make-ahead-and-freeze main dishes so that I'm able to celebrate (imbibe) along with the crowd, and would love some advice on how best to streamline things while still making it fun and festive! Specific requirements are:

AVOID: tomatoes, bell peppers, peanuts, melons, bananas, raw onions
INCLUDE: pumpkin recipes, apples, maple, anything autumnal, green chili, baked goods in inappropriate shapes

Would love any thoughts! Thanks a million!
