I have some big news to share on the blog today: I’ve moved to Providence, R.I. More details to come, friends. But for now, a postcard:

Check out my (Sarah’s) review of the vegan breakfast burrito from the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market. And for the record, I did get my margarita finally. A few, in fact.

While I was on my trip, I tried tons of awesome Southwest food. The highlights included a trip to Cafe Pasqual’s, Dr. Field Good’s (a food truck) and The Atomic Grill. I also slugged down a few Santa Fe Brewing Company Pale Ales and wandered into a bar with one of the coolest back stories ever, Evangelo’s.

That’s me on the left, about 17 years old, behind the counter at Caffessimo with my friend and co-worker Melissa. Some days, I ran the whole cafe by myself, preparing food and drinks, manning the cash register and closing up shop at the end of the night. On Saturdays, when the cafe was usually busier, I’d often work with someone else. Those days were my favorite.

I got a job at Caffessimo when I was a junior in high school. I’d go in after school and wait behind the counter, prepared to make mochas, milkshakes, Greek salads, reuben paninis and a ton of other menu items. All of the sandwiches on the menu came with a pickle and choice of slaw, potato salad or crunchy kettle chips, my favorite combination being a pickle and chips.

I credit this job with teaching me how to keep a clean kitchen workspace and for introducing me to lots of kitchen equipment, including an espresso machine, industrial dishwasher, panini press, milkshake maker and soup warmer.

And as this was my first time I had a consistent paycheck (I’d babysat before.), it was the first time I had real money to spend. My purchases? Five pairs of American Eagle jeans, my first cellphone and gas.

See the borscht Caitlin tried at Veselka and the ham and cheese brioche she picked up at Corner Cafe and bakery in Manhattan.

And check out the tortilla pizza she and her aunt made during her trip.
