Turkey-Pumpkin Meatloaf

I was hungry for meatloaf and thought I had all of the ingredients on hand to make my old standby from Quaker Oats cookbook (which I make with turkey instead of beef). Lo and behold what I thought was tomato sauce lurking in the back of the pantry turned out to be something else. I didn't want to go out to the store and I dislike catsup in my meatloaf. I had a partial can of cooked pumpkin leftover from another recipe, so I decided to give it a try. Turned out very moist.
