How can I add a card in the calendar without duplication

I have copied a menu planing board and I would like to program meals in a month. And so if I want to replicate a recipe twice in a month for example, how can I do it without having to copy and duplicate it?

@leire_pascual that doesn't sound logical, how do you imagine it working?

I mean, I wan to plan meals in my calendar and I want to see when did I scheduled one meal. This is, if I have a sandwich for dinner three times in a month I want to see all the times I have a sandwich for dinner. But maybe I don't repeat it every friday or every exact day in a week. That's why car repeater doesn't work. And I don't want to duplicate the card, because I don't want to have two sandwich in a list. But I would like to see in my calendar all the times I h ave had a sandwich in a year fo example. So I don't miss all the meals I have had. It might sound weird but for a meals planning for me it sounds good, so you can have a history of the meals you've prepared, without repeating the cards. But I don't know if there is a power-up or it's impossible...

@leire_pascual but why don't you want to copy the card?

because it's the same recipe and there's no point in having it duplicated. What I wanted was to be able to duplicate in the calendar without repeating the card in the list...

@leire_pascual In that case, have one list in your board called "Recipes" and then create a card each time you eat that recipe, with a date on it. The calendar view will show only those cards with a date on them, so in calendar view you won't see your recipe cards. You can link the meal cards to the recipe cards.

This Butler command would automate it so that every time you create a new meal card (ie. a card created not in the Recipes list) it sets the due date to now so you know when ate it, adds a link to the card you created to the "Meals" checklist on the Recipe card, and links the Recipe card to the Meal card:
