When you've already got costumes on your mind, why not disguise dinner as well? Classic meatloaf is dressed up with two special side dishes. We used a pastry bag to pipe mashed potatoes into ghosts and sweet potatoes into pumpkins. The ghosts' eyes are black sesame seeds. For the pumpkins, pecan halves make the stems and bits of cilantro become leaves.
