I now make my own version of mashed potatoes. It comes out a little different each time, and unlike anything else I make, I don't measure anything out.
I use regular potatoes, and sometimes also sweet potatoes. This last time, I also put in a little canned pumpkin and low-fat cream. I peal the potatoes (or sometimes not), and cook them in small chunks until soft. I mash them with some milk, margarine, and a little of all my spices I have that go good with potatoes.
Even though it takes a little different each time, each version is very tasty.
