Aerosmith Concert

A few months ago there was a groupon for the Houston Aerosmith tour and of course I snatched a ticket up.  My sister is a big fan so we both got them along with my friend Teri and Laura's friend Desiree.  We just had to wait until August came to check out the concert!  A few years ago we (me and Laura) went to the Aerosmith concert at the same place when they were touring with Kiss.

I had gotten off work that day and met Teri at the Wal-Mart in the Heights so we could ride together.  Laura and Desiree both live near the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion where the concert was held, so they just met there and had dinner.  I drove to the Woodlands and we found free parking!!!!  I am not sure if it is all free parking or not, but we found some at least! 

We found my sister and sat on the blanket with them to enjoy the concert. We sat on the lawn and had a blast!  The songs brought me back to my childhood where my parents would be listening to rock and roll music.  Now all they listen to is country!  What the heck happened to my rock and roll parents?! :)

At the end of the concert they came out to do an encore and also do the ALS bucket challenge.  Pretty cool. We had a blast and I highly recommend anyone go to the Aerosmith/Slash tour if it is coming to your area soon.

Three Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins

I am really getting into this whole cooking thing.  I made these yummy pumpkin muffins and they turned out beautifully!!!!  I made 6 oversize muffins and froze them for later (well, 4 of them, I ate the other two).  The recipe was super simple and super rich.  You can only eat one at a time because it has a lot of flavor.

The recipe only has three ingredients:  1 can of pumpkin, 1 box of spice cake mix, and a 1/2 cup of water.  (The picture shows some brown sugar on top, but it just added sweetness and it just melted, so omit it)

It makes 6 oversize muffins or 12 regular muffins

1 Box Spice Cake Mix (do not add the other ingredients on the back of the cake mix box)
1 Can Pumpkin Puree
1/2 Cup Water

Extra stuff needed:
Paper muffin liners (optional)
Oversize muffin tin (6) or regular muffin tin (12)

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
Mix all Ingredients together in a large bowl
Add paper muffin liners to the muffin tin (optional)
Fill Muffin Tin to the top
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes (until the toothpick or knife comes out clean)
Enjoy and say "Get in my belly"
