Cooked meat freezes quite well. The stuffing will freeze very well. The Greenbean casserole not so well IMO

Honestly - if you have a big block of frozen casserole or the like you are going to have defrosting time and issues with evenly reheating if not fully thawed. Thye will take at least a day to freeze and maybe more than a day to thaw so you are only buying a day or two. If your fridge is very cold you you could even make them tomorrow and hold to Thursday. I use a sort of 5 day rule but my fridge is just above freezing so things seem to last longer with no taste loss.
