How Do You Handle Uninvited Guests?

I was fixing a lunch of ‘eggs over easy’, and my husband’s friend knocked on the door just after I flipped the eggs. It was time to butter the toast. Do I invite our friend to join us for a meal? Or do we wait and eat later? My grandpa would always say there is room for one more, so I feel guilty if I don’t ask the uninvited guest to eat with us. What would you do?
