What are your plans for this upcoming holiday weekend? Planning any big get-togethers or cook-outs? I have a few big family meals that I need to plan, so I've been going back through my stock of make-ahead meals that are good for a crowd. Here's a selection of some great dishes for a holiday weekend — some for brunch, and some for dinner.

Each of these meals can be made ahead and refrigerated or frozen for a few days. Drop it in a cooler, and tote it out to the lake, or the park, or the cabin.

1 Sticky Lemon Rolls with Lemon Cream Cheese Glaze
2 Crustless Mini-Quiches
3 Zucchini and Asparagus Strata
4 IKEA-Inspired Cinnamon Rolls

5 Dill and Yogurt Chicken Salad
6 Thin-Sliced Roasted Pork with Southwestern Spices
7 Slow-Cooked Hoisin and Ginger Pork Wraps with Peanut Slaw
8 Hearty Tomato Sauce
9 Weekend Pot Roast
10 Lasagna
11 Chickpea and Chorizo Soup
12 Meyer Lemon Grain Salad with Asparagus, Almonds and Goat Cheese
13 Twice Baked Potatoes
14 Pan-Fried Falafel and Homemade Pita
