Thanksgiving Dinner Affordable

Despite grocery prices being way up.....the cost of this year's Thanksgiving Dinner

is almost the same as last year.

A dinner for ten people is estimated at almost fifty dollars.

That's just 28 cents higher than last year's cost.

Gene Matzat, an educator with the Purdue Extension office in La Porte,

said the estimate factors in the cost of a turkey and all of the trimmings....

Matzat says one reason the cost isn't higher is because turkey farmers

do their part to keep the price of the bird down as much as possible.
