Creamy Potatoes and Veggie Gravy

A couple of weekends ago, our ward activities commit put together dinner parties. We got to have dinner with 3 other couples. It was very fun. We had a very yummy dinner. The hostess made stuffed pork chops and corn, another guest brought corn bread, we brought mashed potatoes and gravy and the other couple brought cupcakes from the SweetTooth Fairy. It was all very good. I felt bad, one of the women at dinner was allergic to dairy- so, I should have made the potato smashers. Oh well. Here's the recipe for my creamy potatoes and gravy.
12-15 red potatoes (I like mine with the skin on)
1/2 cube of fat free cream cheese
3/4- 1 cup fat free sour cream
1/3- 1/2 cup skim milk
Boil the potatoes until soft. Drain the potatoes. Smash the potatoes, add the cream cheese, sour cream and milk. Whip til smooth. Add a little more milk or cream cheese if necessary.
Once whipped, put in oven at 350 until you are ready to serve.
For the gravy...
2 tsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 1/2 c vegetable broth
In a sauce pan, melt the butter and whip in the flour, until it makes a paste. Add the broth, and bring to a boil. Whisk frequently. It will thicken as it cooks.
