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.

coheeriessparkItalian White Bean, Pancetta & Tortellini Soup

Although this recipe has a small amount of meat in it (the pancetta), I am going to include it in my list of recipes because it can be made vegetarian and it’s simple, delicious, and filling. The recipe is from Giada De Laurentiis’ Everyday Pasta cookbook. I served it for a little informal dinner party and actually whipped up two separate, with pancetta and without. 2 years ago

coheeriessparkFlappers Topped with Apples & Brie

Tonight, I made this recipe tonight, and it was delicious but unbelievably high calorie and fat. As I already joked on Facebook, my husband and I both feel like a pair of those cartoon balloons in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. 2 years ago

coheeriessparkLynne Rossetto Kasper's Moroccan Harira Red Lentil Soup

My husband and I made this soup yesterday and hosted four friends for dinner. I must say that this is a delicious, flavorful soup that is actually pretty simple and a real crowd pleasing meal. I served it along side some of the suggested items: lemon wedges and dates, and I also made this great Onion Apple and Cheddar Tartlet.

Based on the criteria, I am adding the Harira to my 20 recipes list. Admittedly, I now have two lentil soups but they are extremely different in their flavor profiles, so I think it’s an acceptable situation. 2 years ago

coheeriessparkInstant Fajitas

Last week, my husband made one of our old standard recipes, and I was reminded that it meets all the criteria. It’s a recipe I found online years ago and made vegetarian a few year later. The recipe is quite simple: chop up 2-3 cloves of garlic, 1 onion, and 3 peppers (green, red and/or yellow). Saute all of these items together in a pan, add a can of diced tomatoes, 1 tbsp cumin, 1/2 tbsp red pepper, and any other spices that sound good to you. At the same time, cook a can of black beans in a separate pot.

Once the tomatoes have cooked through, warm up a few tortillas (corn or flour) and then add a portion of the pepper, tomato mix and the black beans. Sprinkle on shredded cheese!

It’s a great, simple recipe and makes good leftovers too. 2 years ago
