I will be having 20 people over for 2 days and will not have time to cook while they are there. We will have people sleeping all over the place. I will be making several different casserole dishes and will freeze them.
How would I handle the thawing and reheating? I will not have place in the refrigerator to thaw them there, but I can put them in a cooler, or else I can put them in the snow outside (although it is much too cold outside to thaw).
Should I put the frozen casseroles in the cooler the day before? How long before the meal should I put them in the oven to reheat? At what temperature should I put it, sort of a one temperature fits all average. Can I put say 6 casserole dishes in at once?
This is the first time I have so many people over at once. I'm a nervous wreck so I can really use your advice. This gathering is not about food, so everyone will be very understanding.
