Meanings of "Ab ovo usque ad mala"

Croatian

Doslovno - Od jajeta do jabuka. Od početka do kraja.
Izreka se odnosi na tijek tipičnog rimskog obroka, koji je obično počeo sa jajima i završio voćem, baš kao što bi mogli početi s predjelima i završiti desertom, ili nešto slično. Engleska poslovica "Od juhe do oraha" oponaša ovo.
