Lately we’ve been binging on TV every night. To be honest, watching TV is not a big priority around this house, and we tend to spend our evenings on at events (me), on our computers (him), or reading (me again).

Partly because we don’t have cable and partly because nothing has really held my interest since LOST ended, we’ve drifted away from the standard viewing.

Sweet Potato Almond Squares are a lightly sweet snack or dessert that are perfect for get-togethers or after school.

However, binging on a single show for a few hours? Yeah, we’re into that. We blew through three seasons of Game of Thrones just in time for the release of every single episode of Gilmore Girls to Netflix.

During the first few episodes, my husband questioned why I was watching it again, but now he’s hooked, and we’re already into season 4.

Fittingly, this month’s Stream Team prompt is all about friendship. If you aren’t familiar with GG, the mother-daughter friendship is the focus of the entire show, with all the ups and downs that happen with regular friends, but with the added bonus of how strange it actually is to have your daughter be your best friend.

No matter what, though, they always stick it out together, and I’d like to think I have that intense level of friendship with my small crew. Fierce loyalty is where it’s at, in my opinion, and that kind of connection deserves celebration.

Like Lorelai and Rory, who have food central to their lives (who wouldn’t kill for their metabolisms), so are all the gatherings I have with my friends. Nothing is quite right if we don’t have something nearby to nibble!

These sweet potato almond squares are just healthy enough to sate your sweet tooth and give you a boost of healthy whole grains and fats.
