What's for dinner?

I am going to make chicken using the Thai coconut curry scrimp recipe from Skinnytaste. I will serve it over brown jasmine rice that I cook in my wonderful new rice cooker.

For the chicken I will cut it into bite size pieces and at the end of cooking I will add a bunch of fresh baby spinach to wilt into the sauce. I also double the recipe but not the red curry paste.

I just started going to this website after I kept seeing so many raves for the recipes on another cooking board I read. The recipes are so great and all are broken down with the nutrional info and ww points.

I love to make it with shrimp. Today I am doing it with chicken which cost $2 instead for $15 for shrimp since we just had it that way last week.

What are you all having:

Wearer having fettuccini with chicken tonight. DS turned 10 today and that's what he wants. I sorta made up my own recipe to it wince I don't like jarred Alfredo sauce.
Melt a stick of butter and then add some heavy cream. We drink 1% milk so I use that instead and just add a tsp or so of cornstarch to thicken it a little. I add an 8oz container of Feta cheese (garlic and herb, yum!) and a little parmesan to it, salt and pepper to taste.
The chicken breast is just tossed in a pan with a little olive oil, sprinkled with s&p and cooked through. I just dice it up and throw it in. Takes about 30 minutes including the time it takes to heat the water to boil. Easy peasy!
We will probably have a side of green peas or corn, which are his fave veggies.

ETA: I use one box of whole grain/wheat noodles and one box of regular. Everyone complains if I just use the whole grain or wheat noodles. This is enough for dinner and leftovers for lunch for me and dd.
ETA: Totally meant to type 1/2 stick of butter, not a whole.
Autocorrect has helped me type this.

Eggplant "Parmesan" with homemade marinara sauce and goat cheese instead of Parmesan cheese. I serve it on a bed of fresh spinach and rotini pasta.

I copped out and made pancakes and scrambled eggs for the kids. DH is coaching tonight, and the kids were craving pancakes.
