Firstly go by women:
All the ladies has been mentioned except one – Eileen. So Eileen will be paired with Larry.

Then by food bought by the couples:
All the item has been mentioned except Potato salad. And also for Bob and Lisa- item has not been mentioned and so Potato salad will be for this couple.
Note: Bob and lisa are stated as couple in the question itself.
And coming to Harold couple – they are veg. Among the veg items pasta salad is one and only veg item left out . Hence Harold and Victoria will be the pair.
Note: Bob and Lisa has been matched with Potato salad and also Larry and Eileen has been with Dinner rolls and so the ramaining veg item is Pasta salad.
Lastly by couple:
Only two couples are left. Phyllis and her husband has attended Craig’s wedding and so she will not be the pair of Craig and so to be the paired with Pete. And lastly Craig is the remaining one to be paired with Sally who bought Hot dogs  The above answer will be understood by this tabular form

 husband wife item Pete Phyllis hamburger Harold Victoria Pasta salad Bob Lisa Potato  salad Larry Eileen Dinner rolls Craig Sally Hot dogs
