    Perhaps it is referring to the fact that that person is the main income earner,the person that provides the 'bread and butter' or basic income. For example, immigration documents are a translators 'bread and butter'. (what create the main income).

    hope that helps a little.

    "He is my bread and butter" quiere decir "El es el proveedor de las cosas que necesito para vivir"
