Thanksgiving dinner to cost more this year than last

A traditional, Texas-style Thanksgiving dinner for 10 will cost $48.08 this year, up a little more than four percent from last year, according to the special Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) 2013 Thanksgiving Meal Report.

The 2013 report shows an increase of $2, or 4.34 percent, over the 2012 TFB Thanksgiving Meal Report. The survey records the cost of 10 holiday staples, including turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and pecan pie, to feed a family of 10 people.
