…and for the 33rd year In a row the American Farm Bureau Federation is out with its survey of Thanksgiving food prices and this years feast be the cheapest to prepare in 8 years. Now they base this on the price of the Turkey and most common side dishes like stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls, butter, pea’s cranberries, veggie tray, pumpkin pie, whipped cream coffee and milk. Of course that could go higher or lower depending on what you would normally have as a side dish. They don’t mention the green bean casserole which I’ve lost a taste for but it’s going to be on our table again this year but what won’t be are sweet potatoes or candied yams. That’s the only left over that never sees the light of day until after New Years and has mutated into something that you don’t even want to open and ends up, container and all in the garbage. I know it sounds like blasphemy but I think this will be our first thanksgiving without the root vegetable in one form or another. Now if you’re going to order in your Thanksgiving dinner which is something I’ve never done but has become trendy where everything comes prepared and all you’ve got to do is set the table then its going to cost more this year in fact the price of the turkey alone will be 50% more expensive but either way how can you not like a holiday where the main purpose, well yeah it’s a day set aside to be thankful but really its main purpose is to gobble till you wobble.
