what to serve with pulled pork?

JuneSmith | Feb 13, 2012 09:32 AM

I'm cooking for my BFF's baby shower this weekend & am second guessing my menu. It's co-ed, child-friendly, with about 60 invitees & happening at 1 pm so the main dish will be a smoked pork shoulder pulled to make make sliders with. It will be sans sauce because mama-to-be hates sauce but I will have some off to the side to those who like it.

I planned on having these sides:
potato salad
fruit salsa with cinnamon sugar pita chips (said mama-to-be loves this recipe so it stays no matter what!)
garden salad (lettuce, tomato, black olives, carrots, red peppers, etc...)
baked beans
macaroni salad

along with water and soda, I'll be providing sweet tea & lemonade for refreshments. there won't be any alcohol/beer/wine available per MTB's request. and grandma-to-be is providing a cake.

I'm realizing this all sounds just a bit heavy and boringly predictable &, frankly, like a lot of work. I happen to be moving the night before the baby shower so I'm trying to streamline my workload along with freshening up the menu.

I'm open to any/all suggestions y'all might have. I've been a long time board lurker & trust that there will be some great ideas I haven't thought of!
