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.

Adventures of last weeks truffle making.

A few misses on an attempt to deconstruct a photo for a recipe, but I think my friend and I have got it.

They don’t look like much, but the flavors immediately bring you back to favorable camp memories.

With a few personal tweeks to the recipe, I really have a nice simple recipe to contribute.

Batches of baking for the future, made today.

Just a few months ago, I found freezer cookie dough that I’d made 3 years prior to the date. To my astonishment, the dough was still good uncooked and even better baked.

Since I’m moving, and goodness knows that freezer space is hard to come by, this goal seems even more relevant than ever before. In my previous place, cookies were a vacation and a half. During winter months of cold complacency, the smell alone was uplifting.

The good weather has brought out amazing sales on baking ingredients, the likes of which I’ve never seen before, and I want to bake up a storm.

Nothing assures success like preparing well in advance.

Vegan snack chili
  • baked beans
  • eggplant
  • zucchini
  • salsa
  • olive oil (do not use virgin or extra virgin)
  • salt or vinegar to taste ( I did not use)
  • naan

Heart happy foods!
  • hawthorn
  • oats
  • alcohol

Zucchini cold salad.

So simple and best of all, it needs to marinate. Counter or fridge, doesn’t mater.

The recipe calls for basic pickling preserves without all the bite and all the flavor. Shelf life is five weeks and counting.

Freezer friendly breakfasts.

I’m exhausted but I finally have results.
Today, I have finished one of my recipes and tested in the kitchen.

1RL has gotten 7 cheers on this goal.
