How much is it going to cost this year to buy the traditional Thanksgiving dinner? I was kind of surprised to see that is does not cost nearly as much as you would think for the traditional turkey dinner! According to a new American Farm Bureau Federation Thanksgiving dinner price survey, a family of 10 can enjoy the typical Thanksgiving meal for $49.48.  And if you need help, we are helping Kid Rock give away turkey dinners to those who are struggling….

For approx. $49.48, you can purchase a 16-pound turkey, bread stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, a relish tray with celery and carrots and pumpkin pie with whipped topping.  Here’s a comparison of the cost over the past four years: 2008: $44.61; 2009: $42.91; 2010: $43.47; 2011: $49.20 and 2012: $49.48.
