Can I deduct a trip to Albuquerque for supplies? Mileage, food, supplies?

If the main purpose of the trip was to buy the needed supplies, then you can claim the mileage and the costs of meals (in addition to the cost of supplies) as business expenses.

Please note that meals can only be claimed for 50% of their costs.
