Turkey and Lots of Other Stuff

For all your Turkey ideas, for cooking times, how to cook safely and games for kids...

One of my favorite things to do on Thanksgiving and one of the biggest annual events in Manhattan: the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which starts at 9 a.m. and runs along Central Park West and Broadway between 77th and 34th Streets. If you want more Americanized extravaganza, one show that is not dark on Thanksgiving is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, with three performances on Nov. 27.
INGREDIENTS 1 (12 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons salt
1 apple - peeled, cored and cubed

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) Rinse the turkey inside and out and pat dry with paper towels. Rub olive oil and salt all over the bird. Place the apple pieces inside of the cavity. Place the turkey breast side down in a large roasting pan.
Roast for 3 hours in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven and carefully turn the bird so the breast side is facing up. Return to the oven and cook until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the thigh has reached 180 degrees F (82 degrees C). Allow the turkey to rest for about 30 minutes before carving.
