: The first one I thought of was "Dogwood sandwich," but maybe that's because I'm hungry.

You meant to say "Dagwood sandwich"--Chic Young's Dagwood Bumstead comic strip character would empty the fridge to assemble a foot-tall sandwich.

BTW, I've always heard it said as "keeping up with the Joneses", not "with the Jones".
