His second match was not as close. He got caught and pinned. I think if he wrestled this kid first it would have been much closer...Oh well.

I just finished prepping this delicious looking meatloaf for dinner tonight. The only difference between my recipe and Alton Brown's is that I used 1/2 ground turkey and the other 1/2 ground sirloin. I replaced the ground chuck with the turkey... it's looking awesome so far. I plan on slicing some potatoes to surround it while it bakes. I hope the kids like it...Here is the exact recipe courtesy of Alton Brown and foodnetwork.com.

Cook Time:45 minLevel: --Yield: 6 to 8 servings
6 ounces garlic-flavored croutons
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 onion, roughly chopped
1 carrot, peeled and broken
3 whole cloves garlic
1/2 red bell pepper
18 ounces ground chuck
18 ounces ground sirloin
1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
For the glaze:
1/2 cup catsup
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Dash Worcestershire sauce
Dash hot pepper sauce
1 tablespoon honey
Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a food processor bowl, combine croutons, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and thyme. Pulse until the mixture is of a fine texture. Place this mixture into a large bowl. Combine the onion, carrot, garlic, and red pepper in the food processor bowl. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped, but not pureed. Combine the vegetable mixture, ground sirloin, and ground chuck with the bread crumb mixture. Season the meat mixture with the kosher salt. Add the egg and combine thoroughly, but avoid squeezing the meat.
Pack this mixture into a 10-inch loaf pan to mold the shape of the meatloaf. Onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, turn the meatloaf out of the pan onto the center of the tray. Insert a temperature probe at a 45 degree angle into the top of the meatloaf. Avoid touching the bottom of the tray with the probe. Set the probe for 155 degrees.
Combine the catsup, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce and honey. Brush the glaze onto the meatloaf after it has been cooking for about 10 minutes.

Michael's second match was a bit tougher than the first but he still came away with a nice win after going the full 3 periods and winning by decision 6-3. He locked his hands a couple of times giving his opponent points that he otherwise would not have received. I did record this match and it can be viewed here:
We are of course very proud of Michael - thank goodness for the Nintendo DS, without it I don't know how we would have gotten through a 6 hour day in a middle school gym :)

The second match was much closer and he won 7-4. It was tied with only seconds to go and he got an escape and takedown for the win. The third match he got caught early and could not get off his back and was unfortunately pinned. All in all a very good day. We are proud.

Michael took 4th place today at the Pottsgrove Holiday Tournament. There were 10 kids in his weight class - PeeWee 40lbs. The 1st and 2nd place winners are twin brothers. Michael wrestled 4 matches - lost the first, won the next two and lost by just a couple of points in the consolation finals.
