I have a picky eater kid who really dislikes lumpy potatoes. So thanks for these suggestions! I will be sure to keep these tips handy if I run into problems on Thanksgiving.

I would just refer to my lumpy mashed potatoes as "rustic mashed potatoes." Voila! Problem fixed w/o any extra effort. Actually, I don't see them as a problem in the first place!
