The cost for a ten person dinner on Thanksgiving is not as much as you would think. The 2015 cost of course is up as it is normally every year but not drastically.

The American Farm Bureau Federation estimates the total cost for a 10-person Thanksgiving dinner at $50.11. With the bird being the big cost, averaging about $25, then you are able to really get everything else for a simple Thanksgiving meal for the rest.  That is up $0.70 from last year.

If you are like me though you spend a bit more then that, pies and trays (meat and cheese and veggie trays). Still though it's good to hear it isn't price gouging to get together and give thanks.
