It's easy for us to be late and lazy on winter weekend mornings. Unlike the warm season, it is a time for contemplation and privacy. We like doing every single gesture slowly, and with care. We wake up, set the table, and share a meal we prepare together. Pancakes and a Moka pot of coffee have become part of a ritual that we created only for ourselves and represents us as an Italian-American couple. I cook pancakes while he sets the Moka pot — this is the agreement. We gather at the table, share a meal and forget where and when we are, but we are reminded once again of who we are.
