It shall be this one's duty to offer recipes and menus. These will be easy to follow, and tested to be good enough that a slave would allow his Master to serve it to Master's Guests and reflect only the best of his Master.
For far worse than Master's anger is Master's disappointment.

Summer Surprise Salads
salad sandwiches seem boring after awhile.For
your next luncheon or anytime you want a light meal that stands out
from the rest. Try one of these fun ideas. They are just made for
relaxing in the shade when you escape from the daytime heat. Have
some summer time salad wraps & finger food. Forget the same old
soup & sandwiches. Surprise your special someone with an Avocado
Chicken salad wrap, or perhaps a Pina Colada Chicken salad, or a
Mustard-Lemon whip egg salad. The secret is to use non-fat Greek
style yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Try that and the possibilities
are nearly as endless as the different flavors of yogurt.

in the yogurt, Parmesan cheese, and garlic. Toss gently to combine
and cover. Set in the refrigerator for a couple of hours for flavors
to blend. Then make your wraps.
there are several videos on Youtube that show you how to “wrap a
burrito”. Most of them show the very same thing. Let slave only
add that you should keep a small bowl of water with 1 teaspoon of
cornstarch mixed in. As you finish rolling, take a pastry brush and
brush that mixture. It will act like a glue to keep it rolled. When
ready to serve: make a diagonal cut in the center, giving two half's
that are easy to hold.
