Evening of 24th December
W: Too tired to make Noche Buena now. I want some meat pie. Does beef mince pie feature in a British Christmas meal?
M: No. So what.
M: Ahhh! Watery boiled vegetables! That makes it festive all right!
W: Does it?
M: Yes. Very British! (No offense, my friends–just some British applying some British humour! ‘Tis the season to be jolly!)
For the pastry:
Rough puff pastry
For the filling:
olive oil for sauteing
green capsicum (julienned)
salt, pepper and seasoning of choice
