Polenta Help

So, I had some extra cornmeal lying around from corn muffins I made the other day. I've always wanted to try my hand at cooking polenta because the one time I had it, it was a delightful meal. So, I get out my pot, boil up 4 cups of water, add 1/2 tsp. of salt, stir in 1 c of cornmeal until it became thick, and then poured it into a loaf pan to cool.

It came out a little clumpy, but not too bad.

So then, a few hours later, I decided to pan fry it with some oil, onions, and garlic. And it just kept sticking, and then it turned into mush. So what I did was throw a lot more of the stuff in, with some veggies and whipped up some fresh salsa and threw the polenta mush + refried beans + salsa in the oven.

I'm hoping this turns out alright, but in the event that it doesn't can you give me some tips/pointers on how to use my left over polenta? There is a ton and I don't want it to go to waste. Or did I somehow masacre it and should I cut my losses at a cup of cornmeal?

Thanks in advance :)
