Megan, one of our newest #agjinsiders, is giving us life right now. Authentic and hilarious, she's keeping it real while keeping her two small kids occupied during quarantine. We wanted to check in with her to see what's keeping her sane, what's keeping her entertained, and what she's been up to at home.
Meet: Megan Ferguson
What's your favorite thing to do alone during quarantine?
What is alone? (I have a 3yo and 4yo and a spouse and I fantasize about being quarantined alone).
What's the one song that you've found uplifting?
JULY by Leon Bridges and Noah Cyrus - not quite uplifting but I liiiiiiiike it.
What have you been doing to stay active?
@skyting and @kylemilleryoga have been keeping the anger out of my hips. I bought a mini tramp and attempted the LEKFIT and immediately rolled my ankle so that is now an expensive kids trampoline. @yourmoveofficial is doing Saturday dance parties.
Best book/article you've read during quarantine?
I’m reading the intuitively titled ALWAYS HOME by my friend @FannySinger. Perfect for now with recipes and short stories. My brother also recommended THE OVERSTORY so that is an ambitious next goal.
Best thing you've cooked?
I made the Goop Kale fried rice and my 3 year old ate it! my 4yo (im)politely declined (please keep in mind I have cooked dinner twice previously in my life) recipe here.
1/2 lb kale, stems discarded
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and very finely minced
3 large scallions, cut into 1/8 inch diagonal slices
2 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Cut the kale leaves in half lengthwise and then cut crosswise into very thin ribbons (chiffonade).
Steam the kale for 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat.
Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, being careful not to brown the garlic.
Raise the heat to medium and add the steamed kale and scallions. Cook for 2 minutes.
Then, add the rice and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring.
Add the soy sauce and cook for 30 seconds more.
If you could describe your WFH routine in one word, what would it be?

One silver lining of being quarantined?
Some very hilarious text and Marco Polo threads with friends across the country.
