The macaroni pie is probably a step too far for me on the fat front, but oh my it's pretty!

These are beautiful photos. I don't want to be negative, but lamb and mussels are not a dirt cheap meal, unless you are butchering your own lamb or collecting your own mussels from the beach. Lamb and seafood are usually a luxury for those on a budget.
