it is fine to receive the Eucharist twice in one day, correct? Say, at mass in the morning and again at mass in the evening?
The thought occurred to me that I might be wrong about this, and wondered what the official teaching is.

That would be possible on All Souls Day, when the priest is allowed to say three Masses, one can receive Holy Communion twice.  But then also, another possibility is when the two Masses you attend in one day are not the "same" Mass (i.e., same Liturgy), say on Saturdays, the morning Mass is not the same Liturgy as the one on the evening (anticipatory Mass for Sunday). 

I don't think this is correct.

The law is clear: you can receive twice, if the second time is within Mass (eg not a Communion Service, which we should never go to anyway usually). You can receive more than that if it's for danger of death.

It does not matter what kind of liturgy. You can go to the 'same' Mass at a different Church, or same Church, and receive Communion a second time. Though why would you? That's another question.
