    Happy Thanksgiving from NewsWorks Tonight! The Kitchen Sisters bring us the story of turnspit dogs, used in medieval British and colonial American kitchens to run on a wheel that turned the roasting spit over the fireplace.  Three area chefs, Marcie Turney (Barbuzzo, Lolita, Jamonera, Little Nonna’s), Andrew Wood (Russet) and Damon Menapace (Kensington Quarters) talk about their quintessential Thanksgiving ingredient. Carolyn Beeler and Maiken Scott discuss the true cause of Thanksgiving postprandial somnolence. On Recap, farmer Maryann Thompson of Birches Cranberry in Tabernacle, NJ talks about her work week.
