That is a good rule of thumb.

If you had only a few things in the cupboard or refrigerator (like enough to make some PB&J, but not have a real proper meal) would you forego going to a store to purchase what you need if it were across the street from the church?

If so, you'd clearly be exempted from Mass. If you'd drive there so you could eat, then you need to go to Mass.

To look at the OPs question, yes, if there were a later Mass you could attend without serious difficulty (the kind that would exempt you in the first place), you must go later. Remember that you are obliged to attend Mass, not go to Communion, so there's an evening Mass, the roads get treated, but you had the family dinner, you still need to go to Mass, even if you cannot receive.
