2. Definition (real life): For the entire length of an event
Real Life Example:
Jeff: Did you go to Jake’s last night
Tony: Yeah I was there from soup to nuts. It was so lame. One of the worst parties I’ve ever been to.

3. Definition (also real life): The process of turning butternut soup into just butternut
Chip: Yo bro, I’m starving! Got any butternuts I can munch on?
Jim: Nah man, just the soup.
