“Bread and water can so easily be toast and tea”

"Bread and water can so easily be toast and tea” is frequently cited, but never credited to any author. Something like the phrase is cited in 1903; the exact phrase is cited on the internet from 1995. The saying appears to have been printed on drinking cups by Celestial Seasonings (a brand of tea).

How to use those leftovers

I like the saying Celestial Seasonings has printed on one of its cups: “Bread and water can so easily be toast and tea.” This saying can be applied to life situations as well as food; I take it as a challenge for either living or cooking.

13 May 1903, Oakland (CA) Tribune, pg. 6, col. 4:
LOVE ON TOAST.
“While I’ve no gold,” he whispered,
“Love’s riches shall be thine.
Though we, in a modest cottage,
On bread and water dine.”

“With love’s warm flame to serve us,
At slight expense,” said she,
“We can make of bread and water
Sweet feasts of toast and tea.”

Wanted: Used Kitchenaid
Bread and water can so easily be toast and tea.
8/21/95
Pretty much what the header says.  I’m looking for a used but working Kitchenaid mixer, preferably with the dough hook. Price negotiable, I’ve seen them recently for as low as $199 new. Capital District (Albany/Troy/Rens.) area preferred but not a requirement.

Thanks in advance,
Sarah G.
