Golden Roasted Vegetables

If you don't know what to cook and you want something delicious for supper, try this recipe for two.

Arrange the following on a roasting tin...

1 onion, cut into wedges
1 large potatoes, cubed
2 carrots, cut into chunks
2 tomatoes, quartered
1 large red pepper, cut into large chunks

And mix well with the following...

2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp oregano/thyme/rosemary
salt & pepper

Roast in the oven at 200 degrees Celcius for 40 minutes. Tossing the vegetables once while cooking.

I wanted some meat tonight so I threw in some chopped up bacon, which went nicely crisp in the oven. You can add/substitute parsnips, red onions or courgettes to the dish, if you like.

Science Busking!

Science Busking last week was good fun. Some scientists took to the street to demonstrate simple fun science.

On Wednesday some of the scientists at the University of Portsmouth were in Commercial Road wearing all purple and giving out purple balloons to entice people to the stand.

They were showing a variety of experiments, such as how to skewer a balloon with a sharp kebab stick. And then explaining why the balloon didn't burst!

Then on Saturday, members of the British Science Association Hampshire & Isle of Wight Branch were seen in Guildhall Square wow-ing passers by with more science magic.

One of the best demonstration was making a funnel disappear in a pot of oil. It was something to do with the speed of light travelling through objects such as water, air, oil and glass.

Many children loved the straw oboe as it involved making a lot of noise!
