Pumpkin Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes remind me of fall.  They are comfort food at it's finest, and the primary reason the autumn/winter months require oversized sweaters.  In our home we really don't eat mashed potatoes during the months May-September, however, with Thanksgiving just a couple weekends away, I thought it appropriate to "mash away."  Also, what's more Thanksgiving than pumpkin.  

Remember yesterday was I was boasting about how I wasn't making anything with pumpkin, short lived, I know.  #pumpkinobsessed
