Oh, the humble tuna melt. There's not any other sandwich quite like it. It's one of the rare instances when cheese and fish work together really well. (The other being a McDonald's filet-o-fish!)

Five Nights from the Packet | How to Make Box Meals Taste from Scratch from www.anyonita-nibbles.comThis is one of those classic sarnies that can be whipped up in a cinch. We almost always have tuna in our cupboard. It's useful for adding to pasta with tomato sauce or sprinkling over a salad or using a dip for Ritz crackers. When we're really in a pinch and need something quick either for lunch or dinner, this is a go-to dish.

All it requires is popping out to the shops for a fresh baguette. In the UK, all large supermarkets have bakeries and most of the small neighborhood ones do as well. There are four within a block of our flat, each selling a full-size baguette for less than £1 or $1.55!
With a bit of seasoning and a little bit of time in the broiler, you'll have a fantastic and fast sandwich for lunch or tea. If you're having it for your tea, add some sides such as onion rings and peas or chips, salad etc.

Keep reading for the recipe & the #GetHimFed party!

Welcome to #GetHimFed with Jess from Hungry Harps and me! :)

We have all heard the saying, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” It’s true – and any good woman knows it! Not only do men love to satisfy their hunger with something delightful on the palate, they are also in love with the fact that their meals are made, with love, by the women in their life. Sometimes they are even eager to please back after tasting a recipe that was whipped up for them – and those are the ones we are looking for at #GetHimFed!

There are a few ways to participate, pick one or pick all! The level of participation is up to you - the more sharing you do, the more exposure you will get. Something special about this party is that you don't need a blog to join in the fun - just see below!
Here are the ways you can participate with #GetHimFed:  

1. Link up a delicious, man-pleasing recipe. It doesn't have to just be hamburgers or nachos or hot wings - it just has to be anything edible that pleases the guy in your life. The recipes that leave him silent at the table because the food is too good to stop eating. We want the goods here!  

2. Are you on Instagram? Post pictures of your meal – from preparing to being eaten by your man, post it on Instagram with the hashtag #GetHimFed and you could be featured on next week’s Social Media(S&M) Features! Posts to Instagram, using the #GetHimFed hashtag, will be reposted via InstaRepost – which means more exposure for you!!

3. Leave a comment. Since you were going to do that anyway, include what your man will do for you after indulging in whichever meal(s) you are sharing. Maybe he did the dishes? Gave you a foot massage? Let's share with each other and maybe get some tips out of this!!

Rules are no fun, so let’s call these suggestions for linking up your recipe(s)...  

1. Follow your hosts socially (however you'd like) and let us know so we can do the same in return!

2. Visit at least the link before yours. Leave a comment stating that you stopped by. (We all love to read comments, so share the love!)  

3. Spread the word; grab a participator's button and display it on your blog.  

4. Link to your recipes--no giveways or promos, please.  

5. As a participant, you acknowledge that photos from the post you link may be distributed as a part of the #GetHimFed Feature and/or across social media platforms. If this is the case, all photos will be credited back to your sites and posts and credit will be given.

6. By participating in this link party, you agree to be added to Anyonita Nibbles' email marketing list. As a result, you will receive on average three emails a week from me: a reminder about both parties I host and a weekly RSS feed displaying my recent posts. If you do not wish to receive these emails, you can opt-out at any time by clicking the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email. Alternatively, email me directly and I will remove you from the list.

With all that said, let's get our freak party on!
