Ideas for Potluck Lunch Day?

So, Friday the 21st is Potluck Lunch Day at work. Potluck Lunch Day is like Pretzel Day on The Office: Everyone looks forward to Potluck Lunch Day all year long.

The problem? Because I'm in IT, I'm supposed to bring a dessert. Last year, I brought cupcakes. However, I've got a lot going on and I know next week is going to be super busy, so I'm not going to have time to bake a dessert Thursday evening (trust me, there is no way). I still want to participate and I can get something from the bakery that I love in Hampstead, but I'd really rather bake something. So, can anyone think of something that I could make this weekend when I have time and either store it out or freeze or refrigerate it until Friday the 21st? Ideas?

I wake up every morning in a bed that's too small, drive my daughter to a school that's too expensive, and then I go to work to a job for which I get paid too little, but on pretzel day? Well, I like pretzel day... --Stanley

Pound cake. Basically, for a dessert to freeze well, you want it to have a dense crumb and no frosting or filling or anything like that. So then you don't have to worry about any sogginess or texture issues as you thaw it. I have a very good cream cheese pound cake recipe if you'd like.

baking cookies?

brownies do well also, can make ahead and freeze. then just frost with powdered sugar. much more cost-effective than the bakery

Dustin's mint brownies!

The only problem with the mint brownies is you can't freeze them with the frosting and it's a little fiddly to deal with if you're short on time night before or day of the lunch. As me how I know this.
