It would be great to be able to copy a meal from one meal to another without having to save it as a meal. For example, right now if I have spaghetti for dinner, I can copy it from Thursday's dinner to Friday's dinner. But what if I choose to have it for lunch on Friday instead? I either have to re-enter the entire meal on Friday at lunch, or save the meal, add it to my log, and then delete it from my log. (I do that because the ingredients always change when we cook in my family, so the 'spaghetti' meal is never quite the same.)
**If this is already possible, please let me know how to do it!

You can either, copy it from Thursday dinner to Friday dinner then click each line of the food item to change which meal it is logged under and move it to lunch (on the computer anyway)
Or you can click quick tools > remember meal
and if you have a basic "spaghetti meal" that has all the ingredients listed you can change the quantity of each line item at the time you use the "remembered meal" it's not like a recipe where you're locked into the exact ratio of ingredients at the time of creation without deleting the food item and entering it back to the recipe to change quantity (or using the app to edit the recipe quantity directly, iE a mobile platform app, not the website itself)
go to lunch on Friday, click add food
on the "add food to lunch" page there is a search box and (default setting) is that below that search box it will say
"Or add favorite for lunch"
if you click that word lunch and pick the only other option which is all meals, when you now click your recent tab (depending on your meal set up... mine is B, L, D, Snack) Dinner from last night should be near the top of your recent list as it is one of your 2 most recently logged meals. You can sort by relevance, and then the last item logged in dinner would be the first of the items to show up (after snacks if you have it) or you can sort by name which will have you looking for your noodles, your sauce etc by name rather than last use.
