Typical Thanksgiving dinner to cost nearly $50 this year

Turkey with all the fixin's should run you about $49.48 this year.

That's the cost of a classic Thanksgiving dinner, according to the annual survey from the American Farm Bureau Federation.

The bird eats up most of the cost, at about $22.

Then comes milk, at $3.59 a gallon, and sweet potatoes, three pounds for $3.15.

Pumpkin pie mix will run you about $3, stuffing, a little less.

Then there's rolls, whipping cream, peas, pie shells, cranberries, and other miscellaneous items.
