Looking out my Backdoor: Night cooking

Do you ever spend the night working? Without getting out of bed? Not creative thinking, not mentally composing poetry or writing love (or hate) letters you will never send. I mean real physical labor type working.
I just spent the night cooking, perfecting my version of pay de chili marron, translated as bell pepper pie. Without getting out of bed.
This is not a usual Mexican dish. You could peek into every kitchen in Etzatlan and you won’t find a slice of this exotic pie. As my gardener Leo says, “Mexicans don’t eat bell peppers.”
We are surrounded by hundreds, no exaggeration...
