Excited about the prospect of celebrating Thanksgiving with family and friends this year instead of being told to stay away from everyone? Well, that’s great!
Just consider switching from turkey to off-brand cereal or something:
Thanksgiving 2021 is shaping up to be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday. Nearly every ingredient, from the turkey to the after-dinner coffee, is expected to cost more than ever. https://t.co/JIVaUiucuC

More from the New York Times:
Nearly every component of the traditional American Thanksgiving dinner, from the disposable aluminum turkey roasting pan to the coffee and pie, will cost more this year, according to agricultural economists, farmers and grocery executives. Major food companies like Nestlé and Procter & Gamble have already warned consumers to brace for more price increases.
There is no single culprit. The nation’s food supply has been battered by a knotted supply chain, high transportation expenses, labor shortages, trade policies and bad weather. Inflation is at play, too. In September, the Consumer Price Index for food was up 4.6 percent from a year ago. Prices for meat, poultry, fish and eggs soared 10.5 percent.
Who could’ve predicted something like this?
Weird coincidence. Oh well! https://t.co/fW8eLyTNvR

I thought it was just a treadmill crisis

Apparently not. But look at it this way: if you can’t afford to eat, you won’t need to burn calories on your treadmill.
At least the 4th of July was 26 cents cheaper @ComfortablySmug

Nope, just 16 cents. But that’s better than nothing!

On the other hand, I saved 16 cents on my Fourth of July BBQ. Thanks Joe!

Count your blessings. All 16 of them.
No more $0.16 savings, huh? Oh well, we can't always have the good times.

Don’t worry! As long as you were careful with your 16 cents, you should be just fine!
Good thing I have those 16 cents left over from the 4th of July. https://t.co/GR9ZySMVog

Just don’t spend them all in one place.

For your Thanksgiving feast don’t forget to add a dollop of supply chain woes, big pinch of labor shortages, a sprinkle of sky high transportation costs, & a heavy pour of inflation!
Remember to give thanks to the Biden Admin for making this holiday season extra expensive! https://t.co/3sGXMGPD7X
