What all I cooked on Lincoln’s Birthday Holiday?

I generally look for the holidays in my calendar much often as I like to spend time with my loved ones and celebrate and enjoy. There is holiday in our state on the occasion of Lincoln’s Birthday as many of you must be aware of the fact that Abraham Lincoln was one of the most popular president in United States. As his birthday falls on February 12, I still have one more day to make the preparations or plan what to cook which is different as well as tastier.

Chicken is often cooked during weekends so I thought why not to look for some simple ground beef recipes.  I simply started to browse the websites where I could match with the recipe idea which was already there in my mind.

I came across these two websites where the ground beef recipes can be cooked in just 20 minutes. Wasn’t it amazing I am sure I will love cooking them and actually then only I could spend valuable time with my family too?
