Corn Chowder

Couldn't find a recipe that had everything I wanted, so I combined a few and it turned out pretty good. So for a little lighter corn chowder, here we go:

3 large onions(sweet ones are my favorite), chopped
2 T olive oil
4 T butter
3 cloves garlic
8 T flour
1 heaping tsp dried thyme
1 heaping tsp dried parsley
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
12 C chicken broth
2 C whole milk(half and half or cream if you feel the need)
12 ears of corn cut off cob, or 2 lbs frozen corn(fresh makes a huge difference)
10 slices bacon, cooked and strained

Saute onion until it starts to become translucent. Add garlic and butter and saute for a few more minutes. Add flour and spices and cook for one more minute. Add broth and milk, bring to a boil and cook for about 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Add corn and bring back to a boil then add bacon and turn off heat. Serve with cheese, chives and bread.
