Create desert-inspired table decorations by filling several mini terra-cotta pots with dried beans or lentils for ballast. Top that with a layer of something spreadable and sticky, like cream cheese or peanut butter, and a sprinkle of "sand" (try grated Parmesan or uncooked couscous). Press in a few cactus-like veggies -- artichokes, Brussels sprouts, small zucchini, Romanesco broccoli. Result: a display so adorable your guests will think they're seeing a mirage!Get quick and easy recipes for dinner tonight! Start now!
