If you’re wallet seems lighter after shopping for your Thanksgiving dinner, it is! The cost of the average dinner has gone up by about $1.80 this year. A traditional dinner of turkey, red and sweet potatoes, onions, green beans, celery, milk, butter, cranberry sauce, canned pumpkin, pie crust, bread, cream of mushroom soup and chicken broth will cost Americans about $57.97. Last year it was $56.10.
Now, if you’d like to shell out a little more cash, but save on the work, then Costco has what you’re looking for! Costco is selling a frozen "Complete Turkey Dinner" in a box for $79.95. It feeds a group of eight to ten people turkey, stuffing, green beans, sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes, and gravy. The time is takes? 90 minutes!
