Fungi ID help please!

We've been out taking photos of the lovely fungi which has popped up after the rains. Elder Munchkin found a beauty but we can't identify it. It looks similar to a Russule, but the underneath is spongelike, not striped like the Russules are.
If anyone can identify it we'd be grateful!

The Enormous Radish!

Ok - this has to be the brag of all brags.....
Check out this radish!

Yes, that's a normal radish next to it. Same variety, planted in a different spot.
I pulled this up when I was weeding thinking it was wild radish (the weed). It was 13.5 cm in length and 10cm across.

THIS is what happens when you buy your soil from the Green Life Soil company people!!!

I dare one of you to plant turnips in their vegie concentrate!!!

And to top it off, no it wasn't woody at all despite it's massive size. It tastes fine. We're using it in sushi and salads.... to be honest I don't know what else to do with that much radish.

Once again for those of you who missed it before.
