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.

Spelt Pasta with Savory Walnut and Mushroom Sauce

Serves 4 to 6

1 cup walnuts, toasted
1/2 cup heavy cream or vegetable broth
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
6 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
6 ounces button mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons mirin or water
6 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 pound dried spelt spaghetti

Put 3/4 cup of the walnuts and heavy cream into a blender and puree until smooth. Set aside. Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, 6 to 8 minutes. Add garlic and mushrooms and raise the heat. Cook, stirring often, until mushrooms release their juices, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low, add mirin and simmer, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of the parsley and reserved cream-walnut mixture to the sauce. Simmer lightly, 2 to 3 minutes, until the sauce is thickened.

Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain well and transfer to a large bowl. Pour sauce over pasta, toss to coat and garnish with remaining 1/4 cup walnuts and 2 tablespoons parsley. Serve immediately.
