Friends, today I’m sharing another great hosting idea for a small luncheon: Serve a Best Tuna Sandwich Board where guests build their own sandwich.

Best Tuna Sandwich Board

Tuna may be unique to your guests’ palates, so you can always ask ahead. I find, you’re either a tunafish lover or not. Then add mayo, pesto (optional) and follow my recipe. Or, you can make a classic Tuna Salad Sandwich!

This is an impressive and incredibly easy way to serve lunch for a crowd! Everyone can customize their sandwich to their liking. You can also serve a Tuna Melt Sliders Game Day Board for a larger group!

One thing I am so grateful for is the many friendships in my life.

Be consistent with your hospitality

A new goal for the year that you may want to consider, is one that I’ve put into practice for years: Be consistent with your hospitality.

Honor your goal by staying faithful in hosting others. The rewards are sooooo great. For me, it’s such a blessing to have people into our home and to share a meal. I learn so much!

Honestly, I find myself loving so much more, and it’s always great to learn about others.

How to make progress with hospitality

A tip that may help you make progress in this area is to:

  1. Document your progress! Keep a journal of who you invite and what you serve!
  2. Align yourself with like-minded people.

Find people who love to eat and are interesting, and share a meal together! Many times, you’ll get an invite back into their home!

For now, here’s what you need for this tuna board:

  • Canned tuna, mayo, pesto, salt and pepper
