The sweet flavor of root beer makes this dinner a hit with the children. Serve with kid-friendly Carrot Salad with Pineapple, Potato Salad with Sweet Peppers, and Upside-Down Sundaes. Your family will love the dinner, and you'll love how easy it is to make with pantry staples like canned pineapple and frozen peppers. And don't forget that the pork cooks in the slow cooker while you're busy doing something else.
Shredded carrots tossed with a dollop of mayonnaise and canned crushed pineapple makes a great sweet salad.
Fun for kids and grown-ups alike, try this funny sundae: Put a cherry and whipped cream in the bottom of the cup, drizzle with chocolate sauce, then top with ice cream. You have to get to the bottom of the cup for the topping in an upside-down sundae.
