Quick Chicken Dinner, Yellow Cheddar Squash Casserole & Easy Coleslaw

This evening we had a super quick dinner since we had leftovers from last night's meal. I love this kind of dinner...especially in these dog days of summer. Yesterday we worked all day long; I worked inside the house sorting and organizing the kitchen and hubby worked outside in the yard. With all my cleaning and moving heavy boxes around this past weekend, I somehow tweaked my back so I'm trying to take it easy for a day or two and taking a break from cleaning since it won't go anywhere and will still be there waiting for me when my back is better. While hubby was working in the yard, he stumbled upon a bald-faced hornets nest in one of our shrubs. It's really big...about the size of a football and its right outside my dining room window about 3 feet off the ground. These are the most aggressive type of hornets in Georgia and supposedly if you get within 3 feet of their nest or disturb them, they will attack you and by the hundreds! So, tomorrow I'm having someone come and remove the hornets nest from our yard. It's scary having something like that just a foot or two from the house. 

Last night's dinner was fairly simple since we worked around the house all day long and the leftovers we enjoyed this evening made tonight's super easy as well. Since both my sons were home yesterday, I wanted to have something good for dinner but not too time intensive since we were exhausted from our busy weekend. We just picked up a rotisserie chicken and I made Easy Coleslaw and my Yellow Cheddar Squash Casserole to go with it. It was really nice having the convenience of an already cooked chicken along with 2 homemade side dishes. I snapped a couple photos for you to see below. We all need a break once in awhile and the rotisserie chicken was a welcome break last night! Enjoy!
