Murda and Cait cover everything home improvement this week. After watching hours of HGTV Show (Love It Or List It, Fixer Upper, Property Brothers, Genevieve's Renovation), the ladies discuss the most ridiculous home owners and their terrible houses, while yelling "DEMO DAY!" and drinking Bloody Marys.
Then the girls attack The Money Pit, an 80's movie starring Tom Hanks with enough slapstick gags to choke any realtor.
At 17:30 we start the HGTV Shows segment. At 38:30 we start The Money Pit segment.

Bloody Mary Mix:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Quarter the tomatoes and deseed them, setting aside the removed tomato flesh and seeds in a bowl - we’ll make some extra juice out of these guys. Quarter the red bell peppers, discarding all seeds and veins. Place as many tomatoes and red peppers on a foiled cookie sheet or roasting pan, and sprinkle with olive oil and a teaspoon of salt. You might find that you need more than one pan to fit all of the tomatoes and red peppers in the oven which is fine - these things don’t need to perfect. Roast them in the oven for 45 minutes, or until the edges look wilted and the juices are flowing. Take the tomatoes and peppers out and set aside to cool.
While the tomatoes and red peppers are cooling, puree the tomato flesh and seeds you set aside in food processor and then strain the puree with a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth back into the bowl. Place the freshly made tomato juice, roasted tomatoes and red peppers, celery stalks, parsley, garlic, lemon, fresh black pepper, and remaining salt in food processor and puree. You might find you need to do these in batches like we did. Once all ingredients are well combined, strain through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a pitcher or large jar and cool in the fridge for at least one hour.
