    This was d-e-licious! Doubled the recipe to serve a group of 9 hungry college kids, served with biscuits and called it a meal. I did offer shredded cheese, crumbled bacon and scallions as toppers...I think next go around (and there will be one) I might try a few carrot shreds with the celery, just for color. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
  2. Thank you. I'm thrilled to have this recipe!I was wondering, if I freeze Mimi's Corn Chowder in smaller portions will the chowder lose some of the flavor or will the consistency be altered upon reheating? I called Mimi's Cafe. The wonderful server stated no change in flavor or consistency if reheated in the microwave, stirring every 2 minutes.
