Cinnamon Chip French Toast Tastes Better in the Outdoors

What is it about the outdoors that makes breakfast taste so good?

And sleep … it feels so good when you breath the crisp air.

Before the cold weather hit southern Oregon (we’ve had a beautiful autumn here in Oregon!) my girlfriends and I snuck away to their cabin with our daughters.

Sneaking away: intentional planning, living freely, no clock, putting the normal schedule aside, learning to rest and enjoy.

To have rest we must make it a priority. It means we stop, and sometimes that takes effort (especially for busy women).

After an easy breakfast of Cinnamon Chip French Toast (my daughter’s all-time favorite) we cleaned up, packed up, and headed home. A 24-hour getaway. A special time with friends.

Knowing it takes effort to make a getaway happen, do you feel it’s worth it when you’re back home and reflecting on your time away?


  1. This is one of our favorite camping breakfasts too. Love the Great Harvest Cinnamon Chip bread. Perfect for French Toast. What a fun trip!

  2. What a gorgeous lake view! So glad you enjoyed the cinnamon chip bread. I love the mother-daughter group get away idea. Inspiring.

  3. I’ve never heard of Cinnamon Chip bread or Great Harvest. I live in Southern CA. Too bad–it sounds good. I thought this was going to be a recipe that added in the cinnamon and chips.

  4. What a fun getaway! And the french toast looks absolutely delicious!

  5. That looks very yummy and the vacation spot does too.

  6. I love french toast, and it’s been so long since I’ve had it. This will be something I’ll be making for my Sunday morning breakfast real soon. Thanks for the reminder.

    And this recipe sounds like a really tasty way to get back to some french toast!

    I always feel the effort made for a getaway is rewarding. and time well spent. I just recently flew to England where my daughter lives to meet my brand new grandson. (First and only grandson!)
