Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Week 1: Stuffed Cannellonis

I need to expand my non-meat meat repertoire for times when my vegetarian friends come by. So, after receiving a recommendation from my supervisor (with whom I’m always talking about food), I’ve decided to make stuffed cannellonis.

I bought a box of ‘ready to bake’ cannellonis shells the (Catelli Express brand) and followed the instructions in the back.

The recipe (with 2 changes) is as follows:
  • 12-14 ready to bake cannelloni shells
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small carrot, grated
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley or basil (because i did not have fresh on hand, I used 1 tbps dried basil)
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/3 cup of ricotta or cottage cheese (I used ricotta)
  • 1 jar (700 mL) Pasta Sauce (I used Catelli’s Garden Select: Beef and Mushroom since my freind wasn’t coming—any tomato based sauce will do)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 250 ml water
  • I also added half a cup of parmesian cheese
  • I also added 150 g of chopped spinach


Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.

In a bowl, mix the cheeses, the oil, the spinach, the onion, the carrot, the herbs, the seasoning and the egg.

In a baking dish, add half of the jar of sauce to 100 ml of water and fill the bottom.

Stuff the cannellonis (it’s easiest if you wash your hands well and stuff them using your fingers) and place them on top of the sauce in the baking dish.

Once all the cannellonis are stuffed (12-14 shells), add the remainder of the water to the remainder of the unused sauce, stir, and cover all the cannellonis.

Place the baking dish into the over and bake for 45 minutes, or until shells are soft. Then enjoy!

They look and smell delicious :-)
