Hallowe'en Countdown Day 5

I got these recipes from my friend in Edmonton.  (I did not try the demon eyeball bites as it is a meat recipe)

Devil's Black Martini

1/4 cup black vodka
2 tablespoons dry vermouth
6 ice cubes
1 black olive pitted and sliced thin

In martini shaker mix vodka, vermouth, cubes and shake. Pour into martini glass and add olive on top. Makes one serving

Demon Eyeball Bites

16 large pimiento-stuffed green olives
16 large pitted prunes
8 slices bacon

Remove pimientos from green olives and set them aside. Gently widen the opening of the prunes, push 1 olive inside each, pulling prune around the olive to enclose but you need to remember to leave the olive hole exposed.
Cut bacon in half crosswise, wrap 1 slice around each prune, secure with toothpick. Cover this and refrigerate - no longer then one day ahead of time.
Place prunes on a greased baking sheet and bake at 375F for 20 minutes (roughly) until bacon is crisp. Stuff pimientos back into the olives opening and serve pimiento side up.  Serves 16 pieces.
