    I don't want to make spaghetti sauce.  Maybe a cream sauce?  I don't know what to make.  I have cabbage, broccoli, carrots, canned soups.

    False

    Everything is okay in the end, if it's not okay, then it's not the end.

     Simmer them with cabbage and carrots in sweet-n-sour sauce?

    False

    A lot of this is folk memories and cultural hangovers.

     Maybe a stir-fry with the veggies?

     Simmer with some chicken or beef broth and the veggies. Add a can of beans and some pasta and you'll have a nice minestrone soup.

     Wrap them in cabbage, pour gravy* over them, and bake as stuffed grape leaves.

    *Or stewed tomatoes and white raisins, if you're adverturous.

    False

    Make a brown gravy with them and serve over noodles. Side dish of coleslaw made with your cabbage and carrots. Or serve with sauted mushrooms and onions; or shish kabob them. Use the cabbage and carrots for a hot slaw.

    I sometimes serve meatballs in brown gravy over mashed potatoes mixed with chopped spinach or chopped kale.

    edited also meatballs in either brown gravy or in tomato sauce goes well with haluski (cabbage and noodles) or bubble and squeak (cabbage and potatoes)

    My mom makes a quick version of Norwegian meatballs by adding a can of cream of chicken soup and sour cream to the pan drippings (after taking the grease off, but leaving the brown bits), then simmers on low.  I've had them with just sour cream added to the pan as well, but I like it with the soup better. 

    You can make steamed broccoli and/or carrots to serve with them.  If you have potatoes, rice, or noodles...it would be a very hearty meal.
