Mom's turning 77 tomorrow.

So it's Mom's birthday tomorrow, and I told her I'd cook her whatever she wants.

Last night she came back with her order.

She loves the slow cooker pulled pork I make and also asked for homemade fries. I'm happy to reciprocate, but it almost sounds too easy.

Can you think of a side or two or even a dessert that would be good company for the pork and fries?
