HAPPY 2012! soup, salad and bread

pumpkin soup, originally uploaded by cabanagirl.
It's Sunday, it's January and it's cold outside so what's to do? I'll spend the day in the kitchen and then watch the Bronco game.
The soup is a winter squash variation of butternut squash. The salad is a fresh and crunchy coleslaw and the bread is a variation of Amy's bakery (NYC) famous Semolina bread with fennel and golden raisins.
These recipes all have a common threads: lots of spices that overlap: fennel, chili, sage and pumpkin seeds. And the pumpkin, cabbage and sage all came from my garden. Did I mention it is January?
The recipes are just slight variations from Paula Deen and Michael Chiarello. The bread recipe is a basic bread with 2 Tbs fennel seed and 3/4 cup green raisins added before the final rise.
Happy New Year
