Bob's your uncle
Bob's your uncle (sometimes elaborately Robert's your mother's brother) is a commonly used expression mainly in Britain and Commonwealth nations. Typically, someone says it to conclude a set of simple instructions to mean, "and there you have it," or "you're all set." For example, "To make a ham sandwich, just put a piece of ham between two slices of buttered bread, and Bob's your uncle."
