If you’re the Thanksgiving cook of the house, you’ve probably already started preparing for, or at least thinking about, the holiday meal. With Thanksgiving just about a week away, Texas cooks are making their grocery lists and budgeting to feed their families and friends.
According to Texas Farm Bureau’s Thanksgiving Meal Report, a traditional Thanksgiving meal will cost $48.69 to feed 10 hungry Texans this year. At less than $5 per person for turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pecan pie and several other fixin’s, that’s a pretty good deal!
Here’s a look at this year’s Thanksgiving Meal Report basket:
Texas Farm Bureau’s Thanksgiving Meal Report—which is part of its quarterly Grocery Price Watch survey—tracks grocery prices for 10 holiday staples from shoppers across the Lone Star State. This year, 36 shoppers recorded the prices at their local grocery stores from Oct. 27-Nov. 4.
