Bush's Cannellini Beans and Beet Hummus | reluctantentertainer.com

I love the word “homey”. It just feels so good. Sort of like a fresh loaf of bread coming out of the oven, or a warm fire, a soft blanket in the sunlight or in the backyard under a big tree. I think of food, ambience, the people you love.

Adjective: (of a place or surroundings) Pleasantly comfortable and cozy.

Tonight I get to sit out by a fire and talk about life with good friends.

“Like teenagers do.”

That’s what my friend said, when she sent me a quick text.

It was a hospitable invite. A comfy one, at that.

Want to come for dinner? We talk, eat, and drink for hours out by the fire, just like teenagers do.

Don’t we all long for the carefree days, like when we were teenagers? Everything seemed so fresh, simple, fun, exciting …

So I’m bringing a Vegan hummus recipe to munch on tonight with fresh veggies. I’ve made it several times and it’s GOOD.

It’s made with Bush’s Cannellini Beans and red beets! I used a Meyer Lemon and a few other simple, fresh ingredients.

Along with these baby beets from Trader Joe’s that are already cooked. You can buy these in most grocery stores now!

I’m going to ask a question first, not to make you feel bad, but to inspire you to reach out and invite someone over.

Remember hospitality will never be perfect. It comes from a loving heart, and it sometimes has to start with YOU making the invite! :)

Here’s the question …

When’s the last time you got a “home-y” invite from friends to come over for dinner?
