For a little variety, I boiled a turnip and some garlic along with the Russet potato, then mashed them all together with soy milk and Earth Balance. The gravy included some sauteed crimini mushrooms and shallots, and was thickened with tahini. ahhh... divine.

Mashed potatoes and gravy
To me, mashed potatoes and gravy is the epitome of comfort food. When that cold wind is blowing outside, inside I'm dreaming about something warm and soothing. So it was the other night when wind gusts nearly blew me off my back porch. Even though the snow is rapidly vanishing, there's still a chill in the air as winter makes way for spring. This meal took the edge off.
