I tested this meatloaf recipe yesterday and gave it 4 stars.  

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?99

I grated the carrots instead of cutting them and added a handful of cooked wild rice before cooking. When I was cooking the veggies I was sure to add plenty of seasonings and a few extra tablespoons of EVOO since I find baked turkey can tend to dry out.
I didn't make the tomato sauce but I am sure it would have been good.
Other than that I followed the recipe as written
The 2 loaves came out very nice and moist. I cooked them in my new toaster convection oven and really like how it is baking things,its a little faster than a regular oven.

Wow, that's a good recipe! Thanks so much for testing it and sharing the results, Rodney  If you want a moister loaf with a bit more flavor, you could also try using either a mix of ground white and dark meat, or all dark meat. I find the ground white meat tends to be fairly dry and bland, while the dark meat is more moist and has more of a presence flavor-wise.

I make my meat loaf with a blend of ground bison or buffalo, ground dark turkey, and ground lamb (if I can get it), in a 1:1:1 ratio. Just turkey and lamb is pretty good too if beef is an avoid for your type.

Adding nori to the loaf is a great idea! When the weather gets cooler this weekend and we can finally use the oven, I'll give it a try. My mother's favorite trick with meatloaf was to put two hard-boiled eggs (peeled of course!) end-to-end in the middle of the loaf, so that when you cut into it you'd get a slice of egg. It makes the meatloaf more interesting visually and tastes pretty good too.

We serve our meatloaf with mashed sweet potatoes and baby spinach and onion salad, which makes terrific leftovers for work lunches

You might be able to get your butcher to grind up some deboned turkey thighs for you if all else fails. Just a thought
