Bacon Tomato Sandwich

My mom and I cook together every Friday evening even though she lives in Birmingham, AL, and I live in Orlando, FL. One of us chooses a recipe, and we send pictures, walk one another through the steps–I had no idea how to cook steak. None.–and then call  to talk about how everything turned out.

Friday is my favorite day of the week, and this is one of the first recipes we made together.
