Finally, some good news!
Anyone who knows me knows that Thanksgiving is EASILY my favorite holiday of the year. A day full of eating like a king and spending time with friends and family, what could be better than that?
If you’re in charge of making sure everyone is fed and happy, you’ll be happy to know that Thanksgiving will cost a little less this year. In fact, the average cost in Louisiana is way less than the national average. Unfortunately for us, with skyrocketed gas prices and overall inflation, it will still feel pretty expensive next week.
According to the 37th annual American Farm Bureau price survey Louisiana residents can expect $13.62 less than the national average for a classic thanksgiving dinner for 10 people.
Fam Bureau of Louisiana spokesperson Avery Davidson says when farmers can save in producing people can save consuming.
“We get to save on some things that the rest of the country does not the best example I have on that is sweet potatoes,” said Davidson.
Consumers can purchase a frozen self-basting Young Tom Turkey for a little under $20 this year and purchase Fresh Sweet potatoes for less than $3.00. Cubed stuffing, Serving rolls, and frozen greens are all under $8 this year.
