What are some good meal ideas for a houseboat vacation?

My family will be vacationing with another on a houseboat. Total of 4 adults and 5 kids, all good eaters (but the kids are kids, too). We are trying to optimize our food and seeking wisdom from those with experience.

The trip will last a week and once we board we will be in the middle of nowhere with no real grocery options. We'll have a pretty big fridge and a big cooler to work with, and we can do a giant shopping trip prior to boarding.
Our goals will be to (a) not eat hot dogs all week, (b) not have meals that are a pain / take a long time to prepare (esp. if you have to make it one at a time, b/c we have 9 people), and (c) have food that we are able to make in the small kitchen with limited tools.
We would be willing/able to make stuff in advance and freeze/cool it, and are thinking about a giant lasagna, some enchiladas, and maybe a tray of pulled pork.
Campers/houseboaters: what are our best options? Do you have any can't miss tips or tricks?
