Reheating polenta

I'm thinking about making polenta for X-mas dinner. It's something I make all the time but I want to jazz it up a bit for the relatives. I'm thinking about roasting some veggies (broccoli, brussel sprouts, and carrots) and serving them with the polenta and some arrabiata sauce, but am open to other ideas.
My question is: I usually fry my polenta and eat it immediately, but I'll need to take this to my grandmother's house later in the day. Will it taste just as yummy reheated in an oven? I use the Trader Joe's kind so if anyone has tried this let me know.

Japanese curry recipe?

I make curry all the time, but I have only made it using the packaged powder or flavor cubes. I'd really love to be able to make it from scratch! I have been unable to find any recipes and a lot of times if you search for curry recipes "from scratch" they still include using the flavor cubes :(

So.. does anyone have a recipe for making Japanese curry?
