    Traditional turkey dinner costs 13% more than a year ago

    A meal with turkey and all the trimmings will cost about 13% more this holiday compared to last year, the American Farm Bureau Federation reported Thursday.

    The AFBF estimates the average cost to make a meal for 10 people is $49.20. That's $5.73 more than last year's average of $43.47.

    Typical Thanksgiving dinner costs 13% more

    I just want the turkey - they can keep the rest of it. Green bean casserole looks like it's already been eaten once, marshmallows on sweet potatoes is a sacriledge and mashed potatoes/gravy is the most disgusting food on the planet.

    It is called inflation. It's how DC pays for all those bailouts and other nonsense without raising your tax rate.

    Except though, as Rothbard said, inflation is a tax.

    I noticed that adding an espresso shot to my coffee at Starbucks now costs $0.80 instead of just $0.60.

    If you think things are bad now, just wait for the next banker bailout.

    Mine will be less -- a big ol' prime rib with horseradish. I don't need no stinkin' side dishes!

    It's one of those times when I'm extra happy we have no family nearby or friends that we'd to T-day with. Maybe take the dogs out to a park that's usually overrun with people and pig-out on whatever we want. Probably not turkey.
