This year, they say a Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people should only cost you . . . $49.12. That’s down 2% from last year, and the lowest price in five years when you adjust for inflation.
For that 49 bucks, they say you should be able to get a 16-pound turkey . . . stuffing . . . sweet potatoes . . . rolls with butter . . . peas . . . cranberries . . . a veggie tray . . . pumpkin pie with whipped cream . . . coffee . . . and milk.
The reason the price went down this year is mainly because the prices of turkey and milk have slightly dropped.
This is the 32nd year in a row that the Farm Bureau has done this study. When they started back in 1986, the dinner for 10 cost less than $28.74.
