hell to breakfast
 adj.— «From hell to breakfast. An expression denoting great length, or completeness, or duration. “I’ll stick to this business from hell to breakfast.” Note also: “Till the cows come home.” The expression conforms to the vernacular ease of coining untrammeled phrases. Noted in Alabama, although it appears to be much more general than in locality noted.» —by Harry Harrison Kroll in George Peabody College for Teachers A Comparative Study of Upper and Lower Southern Folk Speech (Martin, Tennesee) Aug., 1925.
