Oh man.. sometimes you just wing it and it turns out amazing! Maybe we were all just really hungry! ~smile~ But this was really good. I served corn muffins with it. It makes a very big pot of soup. I'm sure it freezes just fine. I personally don't have enough leftover to freeze.. my family ate it up and gave it 2 thumbs up!
