Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

ahhh the smell of roasted garlic is enough to make me weak in the knees.   buttery and slightly sweet, it's perfect when added to anything, and there is no arguing that i prefer it just simply spread on a warm toasted baguette.  
yesterday i jazzed up some mashed potatoes with this flavour powerhouse because you should always have as much garlic in your life as humanly possible. am i right?
