1 lemon, halved
4 small onions, quartered
14 sprigs fresh thyme
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 large carrots, cut into 2-in. pieces
2 stalks celery, cut into 2-in. pieces
3/4 c. low-sodium chicken broth

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Working on a baking sheet, remove the giblets and neck of the turkey from the cavities. Reserve the neck and discard the giblets. Using paper towels, pat the turkey dry. Stuff the garlic, lemon, half the onions and 10 sprigs thyme into the main cavity.
Tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Tuck the wing tips underneath the body (this will prevent them from burning). Rub the turkey with the oil and season with 1 teaspoon salt.
Place the turkey neck, carrots, celery, the remaining onions and the remaining thyme in a large roasting pan. Place a roasting rack in the pan and put the turkey on top of it.
Roast the turkey until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh registers 165 degrees F, 21/2 to 3 hours. (Cover the bird loosely with foil if it browns too quickly, and add the broth to the pan if the vegetables begin to scorch.)
Carefully tilt the turkey to empty the juices from the cavity into the pan. Transfer the turkey to empty the juices from the cavity into the pan. Transfer the turkey to a carving board. Cover loosely with foil and let rest for at least 25 minutes. Reserve the pan and its contents for gravy. Carve the turkey and garnish with herbs as desired.

Lately, we have tried to make sure that we do not miss out on any dress combinations that this fall could complement your fashion style. The objects of our attention are bags, boots, jewelry pieces and other fashion accessories.
The berets, along with their warm jackets and heavy boots, came to the shelves of the most famous high-street stores. If you want to freshen up your style, this is the perfect suggestion. By the example of Dior, you can add a wonderful drop.
Bags with cartoon characters
The trend that runs together with the floral print from year to year is comic print. Comic strips with well-known balloons that often carry
funny or commercially-talked-in character, decorate items and details like bags. Print with cartoon characters on your bag is also a fashion trend that has been identified by the famous brand Prada.
