    "Good and ready" is possibly the most commonly used phrase of this type.

    I can't tell you now; I'll tell you all about it when I'm good and ready. Just be patient.

    Tell the kids to go play and not come back until they're good and dirty.

    You can use the expression with any number of things. It just means "very much."
