I have these nut dishes that I picked up at a flea market. I'm not 100 percent sure how you're supposed to use them. Do you put nuts in one side and empty shells in the other? I don't really serve nuts, but I feel like for as long as I've had these I should have come up with some other way to use them for serving food (mini servings of crudite with sauce?). So far, I have just enjoyed displaying them with other brightly colored dishes. I love the colors and I love that they're plastic so I don't have to worry about them being damaged. Aren't they cute?
