Graduation Menu...What Do You Think?

Pulled Pork Sandwich with Coleslaw
What are your thoughts? I am obsessing thinking about the food to serve for Squirrel's Graduation Luncheon - and I want something that is easy, that I don't have to be in the kitchen for and can just serve up when the family comes back from the ceremony.
Since it is only going to be us [4] and the beloved in-laws [2] - I thought crock potted pulled pork would be good [sauce on the side]. Plus the cole slaw - I have the best recipe, made without mayo, that can be whipped up the night before. I could also serve baked beans, pasta salad and devilled eggs - which also can also be made ahead. Any suggestions? Add ons?
I appreciate any help and if anyone has a great idea for a Graduation gift? I am all ears.

The menu sounds Please all and then more.
As for a present....a life of happiness, success beyond measure and a few hard knocks to make it real. Oh you mean a real gift...that's just a wish. Nope, I got nothing to add.
vert word...ressu: I'll stay here with the food and the ressu go on to the gradgiation.

Great minds think alike; I just made crock pot pulled pork two days ago. And Denny taught me how to eat BBQ with coleslaw on it.

Loved Linda's word vert--she wins today!

Graduation gift. Hmm, kids today already have all the fun stuff--iPods, fancy phones, computers. I got a boombox (for 8 track tapes--I'm OLD!!) that was the size of a suitcase. Try lugging that back into a state park on foot. I gave the Darb a gross of condoms (as a joke!). But then I'm a sick mother....

Word vert: reclic. Perhaps I should reclic and delete my blathering comments.

That sounds yummy to me!
For graduation we got Stefanie one of those silver Pandora bracelets with three charms on it- since then we have added charms for Christmas & her birthday. (they also have leather bracelets which Stefanie says are cool too)
Long term she will have a beautiful "grown up" bracelet that has meaning. Added plus is it makes it easy if you have no idea what to get her. I don't know what your budget is but I think we got the bracelet and 3 charms for around $150-$200. She loved it!!!

That sounds amazing! As for graduation gifts my mom took me away for a weekend, and we went shopping for stuff for university. It was amazing!
