I've got a hefty bet riding on this Super Bowl game.

The guy I'm seeing right now (be still, my heart) is a Die Hard Philly Eagles fan. In fact, today he's leaving Lexington to make a trek to the homeland, as he calls it, to pick up some cheesesteaks, Philly brewed beer and other snacks indigenous to the City of Brotherly Love.

Being the carpetbagger New Englander I am (carpetbagged in, carpetbagged out), I am gladly riding the Patriots bandwagon.

He and I decided to pony up a homecooked dinner as the stakes for the game. My football minded friends tell me I should have no problems with this one, that the Pats are a shoe-in for the game, and that this boy better be breaking out the cookbook, and soon.
But, there IS an off chance the Eagles pull this thing out, and if they do, I had better have a plan.
What kind of meal would impress this gentlemanly friend? I don't have a grill so that rules out my grilling up a great steak. I would kind of like to make a play on the Philly connection, so I guess I could serve something that uses cream cheese as an ingredient.
I know there are some budding Jacques and Julias out there, so give me your best suggestions!
