You couldn't miss the savory smells coming from kitchens across Lubbock Thanksgiving Day. From soup kitchens to grandma's house, many spent the day mixing it up in the kitchen.
Thanksgiving Day is usually a day of making side dishes, cooking up a bird and cheering on your favorite football team.
Celebrations come in many sizes with feast taking place around a variety of Thanksgiving tables and some never even putting a turkey in the oven.
"We're going to set up a dining room in the garage. One person does the turkey, mashed potatoes and everyone gets together at one house," said Minerva Gaona.
No matter where you're having Thanksgiving or the number you're cooking for, everyone seems to have a special touch to make the turkey taste oh, so good.
"Rub her down in some butter, sprinkle just a little garlic and let cook about 6 and a half hours," said Evelyn Brashier.
"Mrs. Dash and a lot of butter," said Minerva.
"We put a little salt and pepper and my mom's recipe for stuffing," said Megan Christy.
It's all happening in kitchens across Lubbock, where generations are coming together, secrets are being shared, and thanks are being given.
"So much to be thankful for and then get to share it with other people," said Evelyn.
