Braised apples and cabbage is a good side dish for pork or coleslaw salad with pineapple chunks and slivered fresh ginger. Hey, wouldn't a nice crisp Waldorf salad be another good choice? If you really want to do something different, try a tropical fruit platter with sliced mango, papaya, pineapple, kiwi, etc. Glazed carrots and pineapple chunks are also a good side. Try mashed sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes for a nice change (my aunt adds canned pineapple to her mashed sweet potatoes). You mentioned sweet rolls with your dinner. I had a pulled pork sandwich recently at an Hawaiian-type restaurant and it was served on a soft Hawaiian sweet roll. Check your local bakery or grocery for these rolls. (I imagine you could find recipes on this website if you wanted to make the rolls yourself.) I agree with Thumper, thin your mushroom gravy a bit with milk and use that instead of making another gravy and rhubarb pie, as Thumper suggests for dessert, sounds great. If you want to get fancy try lightly sauteing slices of canned or fresh pineapple and banana with a little brown sugar, butter, and, if desired, a little rum or rum flavoring. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert. Here's one last idea ~ my friend always serves pork with a side salad of cottage cheese and fresh or canned fruit on a bed of lettuce. Hope these suggestions help!
