My sisters fiancé made vegan mashed potatoes this last thanksgiving with vanilla flavored soy milk. They were... edible, but I did appreciated the thought and effort put into it and ate it without a word. He is very southern and knows nothing about a vegan diet.

Yeah, not sure mashed potatoes need vanilla in them. lol Kudos to you for eating them! My oldest two kids are vegan, so I understand. I've eaten a lot of delicious vegan food. Best burrito I've ever eaten was from a vegan street truck.
