Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Creamy Mushroom Gravy Recipe

This is one of my favorite gravy recipes! I mentioned it in my Classic Crispy Baked Chicken post a couple days ago! My Mom would make this alot when I was growing up, and it's a great comfort food for me! I've made a few changes, but it still tastes amazing! I also love this mashed potato recipe! The garlic gives it a great flavor. Enjoy!
