Happy Birthday Mr. President!


Not only is today Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, but it’s also my little brother’s birthday. When doing some research about Abraham Lincoln’s favorite foods, I discovered that he loved honey! My little brother is a work out guru, and like Abraham Lincoln, thin as a rail (get it?). However, when it comes to his birthday meal, he’s allowed to eat whatever he wants. Here’s what we will have in honor of both, great men’s birthdays!
