The price of being food secure Time to talk turkey, men: Thanksgiving dinner for an average American family gathering of 10 this year — according to the USDA — has skyrocketed yet another cavity-wincing 17 percent, from what was already a record-breaker last year.
Remember way back in quaint 2020, during our first COVID Thanksgiving, when that uninvited bitch — Old Skull-&-Bones herself, Rona — pulled up a permanent chair to the table?
Well, in those good old days, a traditional roast turkey spread with all the trimmings (stuffing and gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, etc.) cost $46.90.
This year, that same meal tops out at $61 … to serve, we’re talking here, an entire family of 10! Uhm, come again, Captain Smith?
