With the price of a typical Thanksgiving meal up 40% over the last two years, NPR's business desk finds inflation-friendly substitutes for traditional dishes.

Substitutionsgiving: Inflation-friendly substitutes for thanksgiving dishes

"Almost $30 this year for a 16-pound turkey, it is the most expensive thing on the Thanksgiving table. I took it on, and I felt a lot of pressure. It's so iconic. And, you know, finding any meat that's going to feed 10 people for less than 18 bucks is not easy. Chicken, ground, beef, fish, even Spam - they've all skyrocketed in price, too expensive. "

That's funny they say there is a glut of sweet potatoes (North Carolina). Apparently NC is the leading producer, followed by CA and MS producing almost 100% of all sweet potatoes in USA. Well I was really pleased when they went to 25 cents/lb here.
