 h1. Dear readers,
 Happy Earth Day! Want to minimize your impact? [/articles/sift/climatefriendlyfood?utmsource=NL20090422&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=ClimateFriendlyFood&utmcampaign=EarthDay "In today's Sift"] we link to two sources who suggest very workable ways to green your cooking. 

 It's also  National Poetry Month, and to honor that 30-day occasion we offer a long-loved favorite food poem by William Carlos Williams, which we hope you don't mind seeing one more time:

 bq. I have eaten
 the plums
 that were in
 the icebox

 bq.and which
 you were probably
 for breakfast

 bq.Forgive me
 they were delicious
 so sweet
 and so cold.

 Too, here is some poetic food writing in the Culinate archives, worth a visit (or even a revisit): Susan Troccolo on [/articles/firstperson/The+beet+goes+on?utmsource=NL20090422&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Growingbeets&utmcampaign=EarthDay "growing beets,"] Erin Ergenbright on [/articles/firstperson/eatingalone?utmsource=NL20090422&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=EatingAlone&utmcampaign=EarthDay "eating alone,"] Jennifer Savage on [/articles/firstperson/babyfood?utmsource=NL20090422&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Babyfood&utmcampaign=EarthDay "feeding baby,"] Nancy Greenleese on [/articles/firstperson/blindchocolatetasting?utmsource=NL20090422&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Sightunseen&utmcampaign=EarthDay "tasting chocolate"] in the dark, and Debra Gwartney on [/articles/firstperson/butter?utmsource=NL20090422&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Butter&utmcampaign=EarthDay "fat."]
