If we're of for more than a couple of days then we tend to take small packs of cereal,maybe pasta and stir fry sauces.As we spend most of our main holidays in France this helps because the kids can be funny at times so we know they'll eat what their used to.But everything else we normally get when we arrive. Everyone's got their own way of doing things so I don't suppose it really matters, the only thing from my point of view would be space in car. I'm also worse than the wife when abroad I love looking round supermarkets and hypermarkets, trying different foods is all part of the holiday for me.
ASDA delivery. As long as the post code is accepted, put notes in the box and make sure your phone is on. You can add charcoal, kitchen/bog roll etc etc. Long life milk, juice booze etc. For longer stays do it twice. For 3 or 4 quid why waste holiday time or cram into car, You can top up with nice stuff from farm shops.
It depends where you are going. I'm going to to a place next week where I know the basics are about the same price as I would usually pay but anything in a packet is much more expensive, and so I'm stocking up on those expensive things and taking them with me.

If we are going for a weekend we normally take enough to last the weekend but for longer trips we take enough for the arrival afternoon & evening and the following mornings breakfast. Then off to the local shops, Lidl, Aldi etc.
