The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.



Tis the season to be jolly, they say. We’ve had THEEE most wonderful lunch.

If you follow this blog, you will know that The Furlongs and most of their children “eat funny”. We avoid gluten most enthusiastically, especially commercial bread. Most of us prepare all our food ourselves and the energetic younger ones make sour dough bread from Spelt flour which reduces the gluten. But it’s not good for Mr Furlong’s blood sugar.

Bread in any form is not good for our blood sugar.

But today we went crazy. Lunch was simply glorious! We had long white rolls split in half with lashings of butter. On one half which became the top, we put tomato sauce and English mustard. On the other, bottom half, we put hot commercial sausages split longways (Mr Furlong makes our own sausages usually). Then we pressed top and bottom together until we could just get it into our mouths and ATE, wiping up the drippings down our chins and fingers with paper napkins.

This lunch is going to cause hell with our blood sugar. My god, it was worth it!

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. After days of No Gluten, and Yes, I do feel better, I am going to have a gluten saturated, toasted cheese roll tomorrow, covered in smoked salmon. I will feel yuck for the rest of the day. I know that now, but I don’t care

    Have you noticed that when an on line newspaper article mentioned gluten intolerance, the gluten gorgers come out in force and poo hoo the whole idea?
    It doesn’t seem to have occurred to them that because they don’t suffer doesn’t mean that others don’t either. And some of them are quite nasty with it.


    • Ooo – that sounds delicious! I know someone with a REAL gluten intolerance. It knocks her out for days – very sick. At least we’ll only feel a bit tired, and our blood sugar will go up. I do notice the nasty attitude of people. Not nice.
